Geared for scientists and engineers with potentially light practical programming background or experience, Applied Python for Scientists and Engineers is a hands-on Python course that provides a ramp-up to using Python for scientific and mathematical computing. Students will explore basic Python scripting skills and concepts, and then move to the most important Python modules for working with data, from arrays, to statistics, to plotting results.
The Python Environment
Working with files
Dictionaries and Sets
Errors and Exception Handling
Modules and packages
XML and JSON

The Python Imaging Library (PIL)
We will collaborate with you to design the best solution to ensure your needs are met, whether we customize the material, or devise a different educational path to help your team best prepare for this training.
While there are no specific programming prerequisites, basic programming experience would be helpful. Students should be comfortable working with files and folders, and should not be afraid of the command line.
