Power and Data Engineering (PDE)

Energy Data Engineering

Teaching Methods Lecture
Learning objectives / competencies

The students have an understanding of Big Data Analytics. They know the different process phases in Big Data Analytics (collection, processing, cleansing, explorative statistics, modeling, evaluation and representation of data). They know algorithm applied in the different phases and are able to select suitable methods for practical problems.

Further, students know about real time Big Data analytics. They can clearly differentiate between terms like pattern recognition, machine learning, and deep learning.
