Build on computer programming or engineering education and experience
Data is changing the way our society makes decisions. Data scientists design and develop solutions that help solve complex problems posed by the three Vs of data: volume, variety and velocity.
Students in the Data Science Certificate program learn the fundamentals of how to store, manage, analyze, search, and model data.
Who should register
Working professionals with experience in the field of data analysis as well as young professionals seeking a career in data science who have:
Experience with programming (must) and data analysis (optional)
College-level basics of statistics, probability theory, linear algebra, calculus (Note: Although we will not thoroughly teach them again, we will review them when they are used)
In this program with three modules, one per quarter, we examine concepts, elements, strategies, and skills covering the general discipline of data science. The instruction is based on practical examples of data science applications in a variety of areas within the industry as well as in academic research.
Building on theoretical foundations from lectures, exercises, discussions and quizzes, students gain hands-on experience through workshops/tutorials with related independent assignments. The series culminates in milestone projects that demonstrate comprehensive data science skills.
