Data Science Certificate Program starting 18th of October 2019

In the decade of "big data" where data is recorded in almost all areas of daily life, ever larger and more complex data is available. The skill of analyzing and extracting information from such data has become an indispensable core competence in research and industry.

As the demand for suitably trained data scientists having these skills is already noticeable and will probably continue to grow steadily, the Faculty of Mathematics, Informatics and Statistics of the LMU newly develop a Professional Certificate Program in collaboration with the Unit for Professional Training at the LMU. The certificate program is intended to create a further training path for employees who already have a university degree and a job in a similar field.

For many practical tutorials in the Data Science Certificate Program, basic knowledge of the statistical programming language R is required. If you don't have any basic knowledge in R or want to refresh your knowledge in R, we highly recommend you to learn R in self-study before the certificate program starts.
Alternatively, you can book a separate R basics course from 14.10.2019 – 15.10.2019 at Essential Data Science Training, an official LMU Spin-off. For more information, visit the R basics course registration page.
