The course was very interesting. It had a more practical perspective than other courses, which I liked. You’re working with Orange, a very easy to understand program to process data.
Since a lot of students in the course were premasters who were obliged to take the course and had practically no background knowledge about the subject, the lecturer had a fairly slow pace in explaining the material. The assignments were slightly harder than expected, but still manageable.
Data Science is different from other courses I had at CIS, since you’re working with real data in a practical manner. You get a theoretical perspective on data science (through the lectures) as well as a practical perspective (through working with Orange).
The lecturers were often late with grading the assignments (and the exam).
