DA 401 - Introduction to Data Structure/Algorithms


Algorithms are an essential tool in data analysis. Additionally, for data analysis to be conducted, the data should be structured in an efficient way. This course covers the essential elements of creating algorithms and the methods used to structure data. You will learn about growth functions, divide and conquer strategies, probabilistic analyses, sorting, basic data structures, hash tables, search trees, and dynamic programming. Throughout the course, you will apply topics covered using both real and simulated data.
