Differentiate yourself by developing data science skills. For those with a bachelor’s degree — even in an unrelated field — this is an excellent way to take advantage of opportunities presented by “big data.” Built for working professionals, the certificate consists of four courses that can be completed on-campus or online. A fast-track program for those without a computer science background is available. Completing the certificate puts you on the path to an MS in Computer Science & Information Systems.
Our world lives and depends on data. Those who complete this certificate program will be better prepared to analyze it and use it across an ever-expanding number of industries and occupations. Importantly, UM-Flint’s focus on team-based project work allows you to build the collaborative skills needed to be an effective team member and leader.
Technological innovation increases the demand for data science occupations. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, statisticians, mathematicians, actuaries, and operations research analysts are among the thirty fastest-growing occupations through 2028 (and among the best paid). UM-Flint’s faculty experts help students develop the mindset and skills needed to seize these opportunities.
