The Graduate Certificate in Data Analytics is designed to provide a skill-set to engineers, analysts and managers for data-driven business, technological, organizational, and managerial decision-making. The certificate focuses on methodologies and tools to implement efficient storage, retrieval, and quantitative analysis of data.
All course requirements can be completed online, live (usually between 5:30 and 8:15 p.m. for 15 weeks) or a combination of the two. All classes are captured on our media servers so if you cannot make it to a particular live lecture because of work or family obligations, you can watch a video recording later.
All classes can be applied toward the MSCIS Program upon successful completion.
