NumPy refers to an open source library that is used for the Python programming language. It is one of the tools used by Python for scientific computing and data analysis purposes. It is mainly used in matrix computing and is used to perform mathematical and logical operations, fourier transform, shape manipulation, linear algebra and random number generation. It was created by Travis Oliphant in 2005 and currently has many contributors for it. A typical NumPY package includes a powerful N-dimensional array, sophisticated functions and tools for integrating C/C++.

NumPy is an essential tool for other scientific Python packages such as scikit-learn, skiPy and OpenCV. As a programmer, it is crucial to be acquainted with all of the Python computing libraries in order to be smart enough to know when to choose one over the other. This Python NumPy: Scientific Computing with Python course provides a thorough understanding of NumPy’s features and when to use them. This course will walk you through the importance of NumPy and to develop an understanding of the scenarios in which NumPy is most useful. You will also be able to get grips on topics such as matrices, deviations, Eigen values, and covariance through this course. This certificate can be that additional qualification that paves way for you to land a rewarding job in the IT or programming field. Therefore, mastering the features of NumPy will help you in kick starting a career in programming and to improve your existing expertise in programming.
