Data Structures in Python Courses
What are Data Structures in Python?
Python is one of the most widely used programming languages in the world today. Many popular applications have been developed using Python such as Google, Instagram, Youtube, Quora, to name a few. Python is also one of the top web-development languages – Django, an open-source framework for backend web applications is based on Python. As such, every aspiring software professional wishes to learn Python. Data structures are a very important part of Data Science and Python programming is a great way to learn the same.
PurpleTutor has many different Python online courses for different categories of school students depending on their age and prior knowledge of Python. We have beginner to advanced level courses. While the beginner level courses start from the very basics of core programming concepts and the Python language, the advanced level Python courses enable students to explore the language in greater depth. The advanced level courses cover topics such as Python data structures and algorithms for managing them. A data structure is a specialized format for organizing, processing, retrieving and storing data. There are several basic, for example – int, float and advanced types of data structures for example – linked list, binary search tree. These are all designed to arrange data to suit a specific purpose. Data structures make it easy for users to access and work with the data they need in appropriate ways.
PurpleTutor offers an interesting Python programming course which specifically covers the data structures used in Python. Students will explore the various Python data structures, basic and advanced, such as string, list, dictionary, set, tuple, stack, and queue. Students will learn when to implement them, how to create them, their usage and application – for example – how the tuple data structure is used by the Python Open CV (Computer Vision) library to represent pixels in an image.
For a student wishing to understand data structures in Python, our course is a great choice.
What will you learn in the Python Data Structures course?
Our Python Data Structures course is for students falling in the age group of 15 years and above.
Age group: 15+ years – Young Professionals Course (YP)
In the course:
- Students will explore advanced data structures of Python namely lists, dictionaries, tuples, strings, stacks and queues. They will write code to create these data structures.
- They will learn how to store, access and manipulate the data in the data structures.
- Students will analyze problems in real world scenarios, and will solve these problems by determining which of the data structures are best suited to that problem.
- Students will then learn how to code the solutions using various Python library functions and popular industry algorithms.
- sorting data with different sort algorithms using a list data structure
- finding the shortest way out of a maze using the queue data structure
- converting conventional arithmetic expressions to machine-readable form, for speedy processing using a stack data structure.
To sum it up, in our course, these and several other interesting puzzles will be solved by students to help them master the intricacies of data structures in Python.

Benefits of taking the Python Data Structures course?
Data structures and algorithms are the building blocks of Python. A student will greatly benefit from enrolling in our Python Data Structures course, considering these facts –
- Learning data structures and algorithms through our course will help a student become a better programmer.
- Given an in-depth understanding of data structures enables the student to write code that is more efficient and more reliable.
- Learning data structures teaches a student a way to think better. It is a skill that will help them throughout their student life and future career in great ways.
- A strong foundation in data structures will help students to crack future interviews in their prospective career, since questions on the same are common with interviewers.
- Our Python course provides the student with ample practice on data structures, through tasks and projects based on real world problems and scenarios.
Age 15+ years (Young Professionals)
PurpleTutor offers the Python Data Structures course for students of age 15+ years called the Young Professionals Course (YP).
In this course, the students will reinforce their knowledge of the core Python programming concepts in the first 11 sessions. They will get hands-on experience on activities to apply their understanding of basic data types, conditionals, loops, typecasting, basic data types, functions and variables.The next 29 sessions will cover the advanced data structures and algorithms for managing them.
