There are many programming languages available, but Python is popularly used by statisticians, engineers, and scientists to perform data analytics because Python is easy to learn and understand and has a simple syntax and a vast collection of libraries for numerical computation and data manipulation.

The project involves building a capstone project from the list of projects.
