Practical Python

Practical Python

Python is the fastest growing programming language and backed by major tech companies such as Google. It is among the top three languages in use today and it is easy to see why. Many universities are adopting Python as a primary language in computer science courses. We see Python as pivotal in driving the rapid pace of technological advances especially in areas such as Data Science and Machine Learning.

While much of our Advanced Robotics and Control Theory content - that includes such topics as Computer Vision and Machine Learning - is powered by the MATLAB suite of products, we encourage and teach solutions via Python. Further we encourage the use of Python as a means to increase productivity in the workplace, thus increasing the competitiveness of our students.

Students learning Python with us first cover the fundamentals then move on to apply this knowledge to solve practical problems in the business place and then in the fields of Engineering and Robotics. Students who wish to, may also explore python as applied to gaming and web design. However our courses primarily give students the hands-on data science tools to be equipped to face the challenges that lie ahead as we enter a new data-driven digital era.

We recommend that students joining us for the first time enrol on our Fundamentals of Python course. After successful completion of this course students may then opt to take our “Python for Engineering & Robotics” or “Python for Business Management”.

All students are advised to take our short test on Python Proficiency and Computational Thinking skills on signing up. We use the results to ensure students are grouped according to ability. It is not compulsory but recommended.

Course Format:

This course runs over 5 weekends from June 6/7 through to July 4/5. Each session lasts 2 hours and is delivered online via zoom. Students may attend on either a Saturday or a Sunday. The following slots are available:

9-11am   11am-1pm   1pm-3pm   3pm-5pm


Content Overview:

- An Introduction to Python

- Variables, Data Types, Operators and Loops

- Functions

- Classes and Objects 

Students are also introduced to File Handling in Python and GUI programming. So by the end of it they will be able to put their knowledge to good use at home!
 

We finish the course by programming drones to complete an obstacle course autonomously! - students, from home, will code our drones to fly in our competition field on site!
 

Note: Details of the mini-projects undertaken on this course are not disclosed here but you may contact us for further information.
