The Certificate in Data Science prepares STEM students to analyze and understand the world around them using statistics, data visualization, and machine learning. The certificate is jointly administered by the Department of Computer Science and the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
The Certificate in Data Science is intended for students who possess a Bachelor of Science in a Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematics (STEM) field, but who lack sufficient background in data science to be admitted to the Master of Science in Data Science or wish to receive some training in the discipline.
Students work closely with faculty to receive training across at least five courses within the School of Engineering.
Upon successful completion of certificate requirements with grades of B- or better, students may either receive the certificate or apply for admission to the Master of Science in Data Science program. If accepted to the master's program, all graduate credits earned toward the certificate with a grade of B- or better may be transferred to apply toward master's degree requirements.
The certificate prepares students for employment in emerging field of data science and prepares students for advanced graduate study. Graduates of the program apply their training to business applications or they may provide data-driven insights that assist professionals in disciplines such as medicine, architecture, education, and more.
