The Graduate Certificate in Data Analytics, which is part of the Master of Science in Data Analytics program, aims to provide students with the new ability to develop algorithms and computer programs for discovery of information from large amounts of data. This includes the architecture of programs, as well as technical details of algorithm development. Students are expected to be able to write and maintain novel computer programs that make efficient use of cutting-edge computer technology.

Students in this certificate option will receive a broad background in the areas of parallel database programming, machine learning, data mining, and network science while specializing in particular areas of data analytics practice. Students successfully completing this certificate program will have exhibited an advanced ability to lead in the discovery of actionable knowledge from “big data.”

International students (F or J visa) are required to enroll in a full-time course load of 9 credit hours during the fall and spring semesters.
