Data Mining Certificate

Modern scientific and commercial databases can contain massive volumes of data. Within these records lies important information that can only be effectively analyzed using techniques associated with the growing discipline of data mining. This powerful technology is capable of the extraction of predictive information from large amounts of data.

Data mining tools predict future trends and behaviors, allowing users to make proactive, knowledge-driven decisions. They explore databases for patterns, finding predictive information that experts may miss because it lies outside their expectations or their searching abilities. Data mining is a process that uses a variety of data analysis tools to discover patterns and relationships in data that may be used to make valid predictions. Increasing, data mining is becoming a fundamental component of all facets of business commerce, as well as Scientific discovery.

The Data Mining certificate is designed to provide individuals in business and scientific communities with the skills necessary to design, build, verify and test predictive data models.

    Gain essential knowledge and skills:
  • Proficiency with data warehousing
  • Extraction and collection of data
  • Identify effective algorithms across databases
  • Understand ideal data preparation techniques
