# Programming for Data Science A.Y. 2024/25

This is an introductory course to computer programming and related mathematical/logic background for students without a Bachelor in Computer Science or in Computer Engineering. The objective is to smoothly introduce the student to the programming concepts and tools needed for typical data processing and data analysis tasks. The course consists of lectures and practice in computer labs.

The course is in the **1st SEMESTER**: so, classes will start in September and finish in January: there will be a written/lab exam first, if you succeed, then you are admitted to the second part of the exam, the oral.
