|The skills/tools you will gain/learn||Marketing principles, Strategies|
|Course name||Dimensionality Reduction|
|Description||Dimensionality reduction is often performed in machine learning and data mining on big data. This course aims to guide all participants the awareness of main approaches and the issues. A better understanding of its algorithms and techniques to real datasets will enable the participants to appreciate the importance of this course.|
|Applied algorithms for dimensionality reduction|
|Description||With the concept of applying the statistical and mathematical analysis of economic data, this course provides a platform for all the participants with the knowledge of empirical content to economic relations. In particular, this course will equip the participants with the fundamentals of economics and application of mathematical tools in the field.|
|The skills/tools you will gain/learn||Econometrics and analysis methods|
|Course name||Health Analytics and Data Mining|
|Description||Health analytics plays a vital role in the healthcare field to efficiently extract and capture as much as possible fruitful information due to the tremendous public health data. This course provides a foundational knowledge of analytics with covering health information systems, data mining methods and strategies in performing data analysis. The ultimate goal of this course equips all participants to effectively contribute their analytics knowledge towards healthcare project to improve the healthcare.|
|The skills/tools you will gain/learn||PCA, data mining techniques, and machine learning|
|Course name||Introduction to Data Science and Toolkits|
|Description||Data Science is the study of the generalized extraction of knowledge from data. This foundation course aims to provide a brief and clear understanding of data science’s ideas or concepts and the toolbox as well in both conceptual framework and hands-on practical. This course will equip the participants with effective problem solving skills to prepare them deal with various data science problems out there.|
|The skills/tools you will gain/learn||Graphs, Matrix factorisation, Python and R for Data Science|
|Course name||Machine Learning|
|Description||Machine learning is an emerging field of artificial intelligence that interfaces statistics and computer science. This course will provide the participants a platform to understand the ideas, develop the machine learning skills and apply the knowledge in life science/healthcare especially those popular research field of pharma and medicine include precision medicine and epidemic outbreak prediction. This algorithm allows the computer systems to learn from data and make decisions with minimal human intervention.|
|The skills/tools you will gain/learn||Hierarchical Clustering, Linear regression, Neural networks|
|Course name||Web Programming and Scraping|
|Description||As web development has become an essential step, this course is designed to guide all the participants on a path towards the study of web development and design using HTML, CSS, API etc. With that knowledge, the participants able to execute data fetching and extraction from World Wide Web.|
|The skills/tools you will gain/learn||Scrapy|
*Bootcamp courses/topics are subject to changes as Data Sciences is an emerging field.
*Participants are advised to bring your own device(s).
*There’s an additional one hour optional consultation session on the weekend to discuss the problems that the participants may have experienced when doing the practical.

The number of hours are as below and are the same for each course:
No. of face-to-face hours per course = 8 topics x 4 hours = 32 hours
No. of self-study hours per course = 8 topics x 6 hours = 48 hours
Total hours per course = 80 hours (over a period of two months)
For each topic of each course, we will conduct a two-hour lecture session (6.30-7.30pm, with dinner/prayer break from 7.30-8.00pm, and continuation of lecture from 8.00-9.00pm) on the designated course day (see Table in Query #1 above), followed by an hour of practical on the same day. The students are to use the remaining weekdays for completion of the practical and self-study. An additional one hour (optional) consultation session will be conducted every Saturday (a time convenient for the students to be finalised on the first day of class) to discuss any problems that the students may have encountered during the practical or other questions related to the practical/lecture.
Example: All the topics of course 1 will be taught on Mondays. For each topic, the class will start with a two-hour lecture, followed by one hour practical. Students then spend the remaining weekdays to complete the practical and do a self-study on the lecture material covered. The students will meet the instructor again on Saturdays for an hour of consultation on the practical/lecture or other related questions.
Yes, a certificate of participation will be given to each participant of the course.
Maximum of 20 participants.
Registrations are open till a day before the start of the intake month (e.g. last day of Feb for March intake). However, registrations are on a first-come, first-served basis and will be closed if the maximum number of participants is reached.
We can make arrangements for this if a request is made earlier. Also, it would be preferred if the students travelled together, so multiple trips can be avoided. Alternatively, public transports are convenient and the students can opt for KLIA Ekspres, bus or budget taxi to reach their accommodation place.
The cost is estimated to be between RM375 and RM500 per month depending on the size of the bedroom. Please contact Student Services Department for more information.
