Catalog Description: The certificate program provides students with a basic foundation in the fields of data analytics, and prepares them for a potential career in Data Science. The program is designed to prepare students for entry-level jobs such as Business Analytics Specialist, Data Analyst, Data Visualization Developer, Operations Research Assistant, and Market Research Assistant. Students learn to use Cloud-based tools to manage, wrangle, and analyze data, and to use Python libraries to draw statistical inferences, which solve real-world problems.

Upon completion of the program, students will be able to:
30 students per year.
Occupational skills, and employment. The goal is to obtain employment within entry-level Data Analytics careers.
Data Analytics careers demand the ability to manage, and wrangle data, and to be able to utilize it in a way that helps answer industry-related questions. The program tackles these skills first with a set of courses that introduce cloud-based tools for managing, and wrangling data with AWS, SQL, and Access, and analytical computational tools such as Excel, and Python libraries such as Pandas, Numpy, SciPy, Matplotlib over the Jupyter notebook; and finally students develop knowledge of basic statistical techniques, and models that provide the foundations for understanding how to select the appropriate models, and techniques in order to provide real-world solutions.
