GRITEx Data Scientist Programs

Data Scientist Program Description

Data Science is a dynamic field that’s becoming increasingly valuable to many companies, small, large and mid-size. From capturing data to communicating results, data scientists play an important role in helping businesses make strategic decisions and optimize outcomes. Where it traditionally encompassed data mining, programming skills, and analyzing sets of data, data science today is expansive and involves looking at the entire data science life cycle.

The Data Scientist 100% online program (MSCDS) will provide the knowledge, skills and experience to equip the graduate to operate independently as a data scientist within any business domain. The training it provides also supports several career paths, by: honing data skills at the frontier of machine intelligence research to become a data scientist for hire; up-skilling to build intelligent data-driven systems in an existing area of expertise (e.g., data mining, data analysis); improving scientific research through training in data management, analysis, and modelling.

Admissions Requirements

To be considered for entry into Data Scientist Program please submit the following:

  • Required - Online Registration Application
  • Required - Copy (02 sides) of Passport or National Identify Card.

Scientist accepted students must enroll (confirm and register) as per the instruction given. Online program without assistantship or self-paced students will not need to pay the school fees.

Flexibility to follow your interests and capstone project

Core subjects will give you a solid grounding in data science, so you can choose the business domain with a major data science project to feature in your field.

In the capstone project, you can apply data science tools to a practical problem by working individually or as part of a team to showcase your major skills.

Acceptance Criteria to graduate the Data Scientist program

To be graduated and got the Data Scientist certificate, YOU MUST BE

  • Completed - Payment of Registration fee of Program.
  • Fulfilled and Submitted - Assigment of 13 subjects (46 credits = 138 hours) of Program.
  • Fulfilled and Submitted - Capstone project (24 credits = 72 hours) of Program.

Once you submit a complete all required materials are received, your file will be sent to be reviewed by the Technonolgy Committee. Material documents are reviewed by the Technonolgy Committee after the deadline is passed. The GRITEx will indicate when your program is complete and make a plan to certify Data Scientist certificate to you.
