Postgraduate Certificate in Data Science (Online) PGCertDataSci
Gain a foundation for mastering data science, including fundamental skills for algorithm development, data management, and predictive modelling.
The Postgraduate Certificate in Data Science is an online qualification that provides a foundation for mastering data science. You will develop fundamental skills for algorithm development, data management and predictive modelling.
The course includes DATASCI 709, a 30pt course on data management covering the use of R and SQL to implement principles and best practice in modelling, wrangling, querying, updating, and visualising data.
A second 30pt course is an option between COMPSCI 717 or STATS 709, introducing fundamental techniques for designing efficient algorithms, and concepts for modern predictive modelling and machine learning, respectively.
