Why is data analytics important for improving business sustainability?
With growing economic and environmental concerns, it’s vital that organisations in the built environment, construction and property related sectors change their approach to sustainability.
With new government targets to reduce carbon emissions, there are now tangible pressures on businesses to improve their performance. This pressure to change could affect your businesses own way of working as much as the products or services you provide.
In order to make positive changes in a way that does not undermine your business’ performance, the need to measure, monitor and evidence such reductions is essential. And good data analytics knowledge and skills can support you with this.
How can the course help?
The course is a 12-hour long programme delivered by Birmingham City University specialists, providing you and your business an introduction to the concepts of data analytics and the use of machine learning.
You will learn in small groups with other professionals from your sector. The course will cover a variety of principles of data analytics such as data mining, visualisations and reporting. Led by expert trainers you will then take your knowledge and apply these techniques on real life data sets.
Who is the course designed for?
The course is designed for anyone interested in understanding data analytics or who already works in the data industry. The course is also particularly useful for energy performance professionals or those who are responsible for driving environmental sustainability or carbon reduction, or who work in construction and retrofit supply chains.
To participate in the course you also have to be part of a small or medium-sized enterprise and have a registered office in the West Midlands, receiving less than 200,000 euros in state aid in the preceding three years.
When is the course?
Courses take place throughout the year and as a dual offer: in person on our city centre campus and online for those that prefer not to travel.
