NJIT Announces Big Data Management & Mining Graduate Certificate Program. This new 12-credit, graduate certificate program prepares professionals currently working in computing who want to advance their knowledge and catch up in the growing field of the management and mining of Big Data techniques and tools. Knowledge gained from this certificate can assist IT experts, managers and entrepreneurs to become more valuable employees within their current organizations and to provide consulting services to companies expanding into Big Data. Learn how to gather and analyze large amounts of data, and how to use that data to manage risk and make important financial decisions.

Topics covered help learners to understand customers, develop new products and cut operational costs. Enrollees learn efficiency, powerful programming techniques and algorithms to transform large quantities of information into business intelligence.

The Big Data Management & Mining Graduate Certificate program teaches the following:

  •     Mathematical properties and usage of database programming languages
  •     Methods of database design, conceptual modeling, and physical storage for database information
  •     Fundamental notions of concurrency control and recovery in database systems
  •     Goal tree search, logic and deduction, uncertainty, fuzzy logic, knowledge representations, machine learning, vision, and action planning
  •      Methods for association and dependency analysis, classification and predication, and clustering analysis
  •      Current trends in data mining, and data mining for scientific, engineering and medical applications

Information on the Big Data Management & Mining Graduate Certificate program:

  •     12 credits – four classes
  •     One year to complete (on average)
  •     Study is partially online, or in a classroom. Mixing and matching between online and on-campus classes is possible
