KIRKSVILLE, Mo. — Data Science represents one of the most in-demand, high-paying and important jobs in the market today.
As a result, Truman State University in Kirksville is offering courses to obtain a graduate certificate in Data Science.
The eight-week, fully online classes will begin on Monday, February 25.
The courses include 6 different starting points to allow for more convenience.
Classes will focus on the theory and practice of machine learning, including principal coding analysis and programming.
In addition, class projects to be completed will be relevant to the students' current job, or the one they aspire to.
In order to help those interested learn more about the program, Kirksville Regional Economic Development Incorporated (K-REDI), is sponsoring a lunch and learn event.
That seminar will take place on Wednesday, February 20, at the Economic Development Alliance Building located on South Franklin Street in Kirksville.
The lunch and learn will begin at noon and end at 1 p.m., and lunch will be provided.
K-REDI Executive Director Carolyn Chrisman says the courses and the lunch and learn will be beneficial.
"I am excited that the program can help with: an introduction to what Data Science is, Big Data Management, Data Mining, and Machine Learning. This has great application in the education, healthcare, and finance fields."
