Thursday 28 April 2022

09:00am - 13:00pm

Millennium Point Curzon Street Birmingham B4 7XG

This course is for SMEs in the West Midlands only. It runs for 4 hours each on Thursday 28th April, 5th May and 12th May.

About this event


Organisations in the built environment, construction and property related sectors need to react to ambitious targets to reduce Carbon emissions. This affects their own way of working as much as the products or services they provide. The need to measure, monitor and evidence such reductions, makes good data and the skills to interpret it essential. This course gives you the opportunity to build the right data skills.

The 12 hours course, delivered by Birmingham City University (BCU), will provide an introduction to the concepts of data analytics and the use of machine learning. Led by expert trainers, you will then apply these techniques on real life data sets.
