Data Management and Visualization

(Elective Course)

Data Management and Visualization helps students understand how to prepare data sets that can be analyzed with the methods covered in IMC 401, 430 and IMC 404.

The course will devote a significant amount of time on understanding relational databases which consist of multiple, inter-related tables. The course will cover SAS programming in detail and includes a module on Structured Query Language (SQL).

The programming strategies covered in this class could be implemented in other programming languages such as Python, R or SPSS. Students should be able to pass the SAS Base Programming certification exam by week 8, and the SAS Advanced Programming certification exam after the quarter is over.
