Data Science 

This specialization provides the essential knowledge to understand, process and analyze large volumes of data, find patterns within the data and extract statistically significant information from them. This covers combined techniques from a multidisciplinary range of subjects to provide the skills needed to interpret large data in text, image and binary forms, use visualization and statistical techniques to interpret and develop mathematical models to express them. The specialization is focused for people working (or expected to work) on the social media, financial sectors, physical, biological and engineering sciences, sensors and retailers. This specialization is jointly developed by UCR faculty and NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory science staff. Learn More
