Certificate in Data Mining
A High Tech, High Paying and in High Demand Credential
Many companies collect reams of data about their customers and their transactions, but how can a company drill through these repositories of data to unearth crucial insights and knowledge about customer behavior and market trends?
This graduate certificate provides an introduction to data mining with an emphasis on large-scale databases as a source of knowledge generation and competitive advantage.
Who is this program recommended for?This graduate certificate is designed for data analysts working with large organizations to design and use their data resources.
What will I learn?In this program you'll gain 12 credits that can be applied to NJIT master's programs, and learn:
- The fundamentals of relational database technology, concurrency, and recovery
- Methods of database design and conceptual modeling
- The principles of information-retrieval system design
- Techniques essential for building text databases, document-processing systems, office automation systems, and other advanced information management systems
- And more in two elective courses
Why study data mining through CPE?The graduate certificate's narrow focus allows you to dig deep into this specific topic, and start applying your knowledge sooner. It's possible to earn the graduate certificate entirely through online courses, so you can more easily fit it into your busy life. And whether you take courses online or on campus, you'll learn from NJIT's distinguished professors and instructors of the Department of Computer Science.
What kind of Financial Assistance is Available?
Financial Assistance options for part-time, (6 credits or more) graduate certificate students include federally funded (U.S. Department of Education) student loans at low interest rates, US Veterans Administration educational benefits and US income tax credits plus eligibility for college work-study.
Online Graduate Certificate study at NJIT has its advantages. New Jersey residents studying online and/or on-campus will be charged, as always, the in-state tuition rate. However if you reside "outside" of New Jersey, you qualify for our new online tuition rate. This new rate is significantly lower than the out-of-state fee to attend classes on campus. In order to receive the new graduate online tuition all classes must be studied online during a given semester. Because of the new online tuition, adults living anywhere in the country, as well as abroad, can afford to earn a graduate certificate or a degree from NJIT. And international students do not need to acquire a Visa, since entirely online learning permits study from the home country.
PrerequisitesNJIT's standard admission requirements apply to this graduate certificate. In addition, non-elective courses within the program require prior knowledge of C and data structures.
