Data science and machine learning are transforming entire industries and becoming an entrenched part of everyday life. The data revolution has led to a spike in the demand for data scientists and machine learning practitioners that shows no signs of slowing down.
The Postgraduate Diploma in Applied Data Science can help you meet this demand and accelerate your career in data science. Created in collaboration with Columbia Engineering Executive Education, the course will provide you with a deep knowledge of data science and machine learning concepts you can immediately put to work to solve data problems in your organization.
Emeritus and Columbia Engineering Executive Education
Columbia Engineering Executive Education is collaborating with online education provider Emeritus Institute of Management (Emeritus) to offer executive education courses.
An Emeritus Postgraduate Diploma contains multiple Emeritus Certificate courses created in collaboration with Columbia Engineering Executive Education, and may also include courses created independently by Emeritus. Upon successful completion, learners will be awarded a Postgraduate Diploma by Emeritus.
You can read more about the collaboration here.
PREREQUISITES: The diploma requires an undergraduate knowledge of statistics, (descriptive statistics, regression, sampling distributions, hypothesis testing, interval estimation etc.) linear algebra and probability.
Participants are required to possess an intermediate knowledge of Python since all assignments/application projects will be done using the Python programming language. Emeritus offers a complimentary Python for Data Science certificate course to meet this prerequisite. Participants who successfully complete this certificate course will receive a certificate of completion from Emeritus.

We have listed two type of FAQs:
With respect to the growth and demand for data scientists, insights collected by Glassdoor andForbes predict that there will be a 28 percent increase in the demand for data scientists by 2020, with an average salary of over US $100,000. Data scientist has been ranked as the best job in the USA on Glassdoor consecutively for the last three years. Data science is an interdisciplinary field. Data scientists need to be curious and results-oriented, with exceptional industry-specific knowledge and communication skills that allow them to explain highly technical results to key stakeholders to drive strategic decision making in the organization.
