Certificate in Data Mining

Many companies collect reams of data about their customers and their transactions, but must 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 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 at NJIT?

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 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.
