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.

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
