Online Training | Data Science for Water Professionals — Level 2

Mar 17, 2022 1:00pm to 4:00pm

Managing reliable water services requires not only a sufficient volume of water but also significant amounts of data. Water professionals measure the flow and quality of the water and how customers perceive their service.

Data Science for Water Professionals online training courses, presented by Peter Prevos, teaches the basics of data science using the R language to analyse water management problems. The skills learned in this course are fully transferable to other data science languages such as Python or Julia.


Learning Objectives

In this course water professionals will learn how to write data science code to solve urban water management problems, including how to:

  • Apply the principles of strategic data science to solve water problems
  • Understand the principles of writing sound code
  • Write R code to load, transform, analyse and visualise data
  • Develop presentations, reports, and applications to share results


The course consists of water-related case studies to provide a practice-based learning experience, following the complete data science value chain.


Participants do not need to have any experience with writing computer code. However, some experience with analysing data is preferable.

Participants will need to install the R and RStudio software on their PC or use the cloud version and instructions will be provided upon registration.


Please note there is a maximum of 12 places available for each level. Once the courses have sold out you can email Carolyn Bellamy to be put on the waiting list for future training.
