Online Workshop: Data Processing with Python for Geotechnical Engineers

The future of civil engineering is taking shape, the 1st of 3 workshop series leading up to machine learning.

Data processing with python for civil engineers

The future of geotechnical engineering will pass through data analytics and machine learning. If you are a small firm you are running the risk of getting marginalized by your bigger competitors or by a market disruptor. If you are at a larger firm, you are likely sitting at a goldmine but you are not realizing its full potential. The time to prepare is now, we at Deep Excavation, want to equip you with the tools need for your business to thrive in this new challenging environment.

This is a first workshop of its kind dedicated to geotechnical engineering.

You will built skills that will help your business thrive during next decade.

In this twenty hour workshop, you will learn the basics of Python programming and how it can be used to facilitate quick and efficient processing of data files frequently used in engineering practice. Data processing with Python means getting things done faster, getting reliable results with fewer errors, while opening up a whole new world of possibilities for reporting, automated checks and interactive visualizations. While a seemingly daunting task at first sight, learning Python is a relatively easy task for engineers, who by default have had years of experience in algorithmic thinking.
