Graduate Certificate in Data Science

The certificate program requires completion of 12 semester credit hours (6 from the list of core courses and 6 from the list of electives). The core courses include Machine Learning and Fundamentals of Data Science. At the end of the program, students will exhibit a deep understanding of how to manage large volumes of data, discover patterns and make inferences from data, use models to make predictions about potential solutions, and quantify the reliability and effectiveness of the outcomes. Equipped with such knowledge and skills, the graduates will make significant contributions towards improving the products, processes, and services offered by commercial and non-commercial organizations as well as the government.

The certificate program in Data Science may be pursued concurrently with other graduate programs offered by the university. Non-degree seeking, professionals may also pursue this certificate program of study to advance their careers.
