Data Analytics is a new way of understanding complex systems by building computational models that are consistent with the observed data about those systems. If you want to play a positive role in shaping the way people make important decisions based on the presentation of data, then this is the right certificate for you.
What is a Certificate?
Certificates are mini-credentials that appear on your official transcript.
- Certificates offered by the School of Computing are meant for non-Computing students.
- They are not a degree. Students looking for a Computing degree must still enrol in either the Computing Major or a Specialization.
- They typically consist of about 5 courses.
- Two of these electives/option courses (i.e., 6.0 units) can be used towards your degree requirements.
- They are a great way to set you apart from your competition when it comes to applying for jobs.
A complete list of certificates offered by the University can be found in the Certificates section of the Academic Calendar.
The following are the requirements for the Data Analytics Certificate. This information is meant as a guide and is subject to change. The precise and up-to-date requirements for Computing programs can be found online in the University's Academic Calendar. In case of discrepancies, please notify the School's Curriculum Coordinator.
A half-year/one-term course is worth 3.0 units, while a full-year/two-term course is worth 6.0 units.
