Following last year’s exciting news announcing the New Post-Degree Diploma program in Data Analytics, it gives me great pleasure that the Mathematics & Statistics department is offering a new Post-Degree Certificate in Data Analytics starting January 2020. This program draws on expertise from the Mathematics & Statistics, and Computer Science and Information Systems departments. Graduates from the program will meet the growing demand in data analytics processes and gain experience in the entire life-cycle of data process from acquisition through analysis to presentation of results.
This program is designed for working professionals who have prior data analysis experience in their related fields. Graduates from the program will have developed their skill sets to advance further in their careers. Classes will be offered on evenings and weekends to allow for flexible study options.
Through collaboration with industry partners, students will gain experience handling real-life data from fields such as telecommunications, finance, and health care industries. Students in the program will work with industry-standard software applications to analyze data and gain skills to effectively communicate their findings.
