Online Computer Data Science Mining Certificate
Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Computational Data Science
The online Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Computational Data Science is designed to provide students with a strong foundation in the emerging field of data science, with a focus on computational and systems issues. In Drexel’s data mining certificate, the technical depth of the courses provides current practitioners with the quantitative skills to become leaders in the data science industry.
This program may also serve as an entry point to the MS in Data Science.
Upon completing Drexel’s online data science systems certificate, you will be able to:
- Analyze a problem and identify and define the data analysis, computing and result presentation requirements to its solution
- Apply mathematical foundations, algorithmic principles, and computer science fundamentals in the modeling and design of data analysis systems
- Design, implement, and evaluate a computer-based data analysis system process, component, or program to meet desired needs
- Function effectively on a team to design and implement a computer-based data analysis system
- Understand the implementation and use of existing data science tools and systems
This program is organized into four 10-week quarters per year (as opposed to the traditional two semester system) which means you can take more courses in a shorter time period. One semester credit is equivalent to 1.5 quarter credits.
