The Certificate in Large Data Analysis requires a minimum of 21 s.h. The certificate may be earned by any student admitted to the University of Iowa who is not concurrently enrolled in a graduate or professional degree program. Students must maintain a g.p.a. of at least 2.00 in work for the certificate.
Students majoring in computer science, mathematics, or statistics may count a maximum of 6 s.h. of course work for their major toward the certificate. Students pursuing other majors should consult with their major advisors to ascertain whether they may count certificate course work toward their majors.
Most of the certificate courses have prerequisites not included in the certificate requirements. Students should select courses for which they have met the prerequisites.
Prerequisites (or their equivalents) for the certificate include:
|CS:1210||Computer Science I: Fundamentals||4|
|MATH:2700||Introduction to Linear Algebra||4|
The following course work is required.
|Both of these:|
|MATH:3800||Elementary Numerical Analysis||3|
