Data Science Certificate
The Data Science Certificate program and its curriculum is designed to connect data analytics and data science skills and knowledge with the needs evident in a host of fields. This certificate program can be taken online or on-campus and seeks to meet a significant need for data analytics experts, targeting a human-centered approach.
M.S. in Bioinformatics
A joint program between Marquette University and The Medical College of Wisconsin, the bioinformatics specialization is geared toward creating computing applications for the biological science.
M.S. in Computer and Information Science
The Computer and Information Science program is a professional master's degree that spans the study of computer science, computer engineering, software engineering, information technology and information systems. It is designed to enhance the computing skill set of current practitioners as well as students interested in moving into the omputer and information science field. Online course offerings via distance learning enhance the program flexibility for busy professionals and enable students outside the metro area to earn their MS degree. While students in the Computer and Information Science program need not choose a specialization, we offer two professional specializations that respond to strong needs for workforce development. We have recently instituted a special option for those seeking a career change with little or no computer and information science background.
Program Learning Outcomes
Upon completion of the program we expect students to be able to:
