Columbia Data Science Certificate Program

The Institute for Data Science and Engineering at Columbia University has released their first academic offering. It is a certificate program titled, Certification of Professional Achievement in Data Sciences. The certificate program consists of 4 courses:

  1. Algorithms for Data Science
  2. Probability & Statistics
  3. Machine Learning for Data Science
  4. Exploratory Data Analysis and Visualization

Columbia is currently accepting applications for the Fall of 2013. Unfortunately, the program will not initially be offered online.

Also, Columbia is planning to start a new master’s degree in data science sometime in 2014. A PhD program is supposed to come sometime after that. Some of the future programs will also be available online. Combined with the data science program at NYU, New York City is becoming a premiere academic location for learning data science.

NYU Launches New Center For Data Science

New York University has just launched some Data Science programs via the new Center for Data Science.

… to establish the country‚Äôs leading data science training and research facilities at NYU.

Part of the announcement is an M.S. in Data Science. Applications for the initial class, starting Fall 2013, are now being accepted. The Center for Data Science also plans to offer Ph.D. degrees via the Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science departments. I am not sure if an official Ph.D. degree in Data Science is being planned.

This is great news!
