Curriculum & Training – Data Science Initiative – CSU, Chico

Data science is at the intersection of statistics, computer science, and a third field such as business or biology. Data scientists have the computational skills to extract different types and amounts of data from multiple sources, ensure data consistency, create visualizations, and create data products for use by the information consumer. They have the statistical knowledge to build mathematical models and ensure the validity of data and results. They also have the domain knowledge to derive domain-specific insights from the data and to communicate the results of their work in verbal or dashboard-like form to non-technical stakeholders. This certificate provides students with the necessary skills in the fields of statistics and computer science and a framework to apply these skills in an interdisciplinary way.
