Data Science is becoming the future! Do you want to be part of it? Complete this course at and further your skill set in this growing industry.

Data has been called the new global currency, and its meteoric rise is transforming entire industries and driving the demand for practitioners who can wield its power. From health care and finance to entertainment, cybersecurity and beyond, the need for data scientists continues to grow in tandem opportunities for career advancement within the field.

To help fill this talent gap and further the use of data science to solve real-world problems, Columbia Engineering Executive Education has partnered with EMERITUS to create the Applied Data Science course.

Our approach to this course is to teach the underlying concepts and statistics of Data Science.

Going beyond the theory, our approach invites participants into a conversation, where learning is facilitated by live subject matter experts and enriched by practitioners in the field of data science. We expect learners would be required to put in 6-8 hours per week.

Upon successful completion of the course, participants will receive a verified digital certificate from EMERITUS in collaboration with Columbia Engineering Executive Education.
