Data Analytics graduate badge
The School of Computing now offers graduate-level digital badges. A digital badge, or simply "badge," recognizes your completion of a coherent and meaningful academic experience. A badge allows you to promote academic achievements online more effectively and in different venues than with a transcript.
The School of Computing's data analytics badge (not a degree or
certificate) is designed to prepare students in the following areas:
- Understand and work with big and complex data sets across multiple disciplines.
- Use computational methods for knowledge discovery and data mining.
- Evaluate and create visualizations for complex data sets.
- Design parallel and high-performance computing algorithms.
- Develop machine learning algorithms.
