Post Baccalaureate Certificate in Big Data

The Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Big Data will provide students with the practical skills required to store and manage large data sources, analyze, and summarize large data sets, and to use large datasets to create models. This certificate will prepare students for careers in Data Science, Data Analysis, and Data Engineering.
