ECON 223 - Introduction to Computational Economics


Credits: 3

Prerequisite: Econ 100 or equivalent. This course is an introduction to computer programming for economic applications. With no prior programming skills required, we will start by installing Python and end using it to solve economic models and analyze data. The goal of the course will be to give you the fundamental Python programming skills to read and write code that applies to economic and financial problems. Importantly, we will focus on giving you the skills so you are able to apply your Python knowledge to larger questions and other models. We will cover how to gather and clean data, solve macro and micro models, and run simple regression models.
