Benefits of a Data Science Program

Data science students will hone their skills in data algorithms and statistics where much of the coursework illustrates concepts with real data sets and substantive problems. The mathematical and computer science foundations will enable students to adapt methods and learn new techniques, providing the ability to go beyond the data analysis skills learned in class.

Certificate programs are designed for college graduates and professionals seeking entry into this emerging field. They also include a subset of the Data Science Master’s coursework and so can be stepping stone to completing the full master degree.

A strength of this program are the three electives that allow a student to tailor their graduate studies to their professional goals and interests. Some examples of areas for electives are listed below:

  • Business Analytics
  • Chemical and Biological Engineering
  • Computer Science
  • Extractive Industries – Mining, Oil, and Gas
  • Economics
  • Electrical Engineering
  • Environmental Science
  • Geophysics
  • Mineral Markets
  • Quantum Engineering
