What are Micro-Credentials? 

Micro-Credentials certify an individual’s achievements in specific skill sets and differ from traditional credentials, such as degrees or diplomas. They are shorter, personalized, and enables employment in specific roles. At the end of this program, you will receive an official document credential from Sheridan Continuing & Professional Studies. 

Program Description

Sheridan's new Data Scientist and Artificial Intelligence Micro-Credential is on the forefront of the industry! Not for the introductory Data Scientist, students will begin to complete complex and more advance data science techniques, through complex problem solving and data evaluation. For those comfortable with the computer programming language Python, students will begin to create algorithms, build and deploy complex models, and more. 

Students will begin to explore a foundational knowledge of data science, using modern technology such as Scala Programming, Google Cloud, and AWS. With each course acting as a building block, students can expect to be able to build data models independently. By the end of the program, students will be introduced to the wide world of data science programming languages such as SQL, R, and Python, with an expanded knowledge of Tableau to better understand data visualization. 

By the end of this program, students will be able to:

  • Add a lens to an organization using Data Science to drive business value 
  • Executive Machine Learning techniques and principles 
  • Understand NLP and text analytics 
  • Utilize deep learning and artificial intelligence within a data science lens 

Class, workshops and solutions are led by experienced professionals in diverse fields, such as RBC, CIBC, IBM and Cineplex.

This program is perfect for those looking to transition into more advanced careers in Data Science, that require an inventive and creative response! At the helm are experienced instructors and industry professionals in diverse corporate fields, including entertainment (Cineplex), technology (IBM), banking (CIBC and RBC) and more. Let our practical, hands-on courses, with deep roots in real-world scenarios, design a pathway into the data engineering field.
