Certificate Program in Data Science

In today’s data-driven society, Data Science provides a foundation for problem solving that impacts virtually all areas of the economy, including science, engineering, medicine, banking, finance, sports and the arts. Data science is an interdisciplinary field that focuses on analysing large amounts of data to identify inherent patterns, extract underlying models, and make relevant predictions.

This data science programme is designed to prepare students in wide disciplines who want to gain practical know-how of data analytics methods as it relates to their field of interest. It is designed to empower them to employ computational thinking and data science tools to solve practical business problems.

Starting Date: 22 August 2022
