2. Coursework overview and deliverables
Submission involves two files – report (see Deliverable 1) and Jupyter notebook (see
The coursework involves a data analytic report.
• You should address a data-related problem in your professional field or a field you are
interested in (e.g., healthcare, sports, bioinformatics, gaming, finance, etc). If you are
motivated in the subject matter, the project will be more fun for you, and you will likely
produce a better report.
• Once you determine the area that interests you the most, you should search for a suitable
data set or collate the data set yourself (see Section 6 for some data sources).
• You should apply TWO data analytic techniques of your choice, from those covered
between Week 3 and Week 5.
Deliverable 1: Technical report.
• The technical report takes the form of a mini conference paper.
• The report shall have a length between 5 and 7 pages including references. Pages
exceeding the page limit will NOT be marked.
• Font size should be not lower than 11, and page margins should be not lower than 2.
• Reports should be written with a technical audience in mind. It should be concise and
clear, adopting the same style you would use in writing a scientific report.
• Some of the components your report should include:
i. Problem statement and hypothesis.
ii. Description of your data set and how it was obtained, including a sample of the
data you used for your project, along with pointers to your data sources.
iii. Description of any data pre-processing steps you took (if any).
iv. What you have learnt from exploring the data, including visualisations.
v. How you chose which features to use in your analysis.
vi. Details of your modelling process, including how you selected your data analytic
methods as well as the model through validation.
vii. Your challenges and successes.
viii. Key findings.
ix. Possible extensions or business applications of your project.
Deliverable 2: Jupyter notebook:
• You should submit your Jupyter notebook Python code as a separate PDF file. This is
needed so that we can quickly refer to your code outputs while marking your report.
Please do not forget to add some comments to your code, similar to those added to the
notebooks used in the labs.
a. In Windows, you can generate a PDF file by right clicking and selecting to
‘Print’ the Jupyter notebook loaded in your browser, and then you should be
given an option to save it as a PDF file.
b. Do NOT copy-and-paste your notebook’s code into a word document, as this
approach will not preserve the notebook’s format.
c. You do NOT need to submit your data set nor the actual .ipynb file. These might
be requested at a later stage, if and only if we would like to review your code
