Jointly certified by INSOFE and Case Western Reserve University
Gain a lateral entry to Top ranked USA and UK Master’s programs
PGP for Skilled Computer Programming Enthusiasts
Over 300 hours of training with eminent faculty and data scientists

Program Overview

This PGP certification is designed for programming enthusiasts who wish to gain further prowess in the field of data science and computer science. Students will be taught in depth concepts in Machine Learning, Data Mining, Computer Vision, Computational Networks, and Contemporary Issues in Data Mining and Big Data.

The PGP jointly certified by Case Western Reserve University will require students to complete numerous projects and develop small research papers on real world problems in collaboration with peers under the guidance of course mentors. In addition, students will also need to complete 100 hours of lab work on Machine Learning.

This certification in Computational Data Science will equip students to develop algorithms and build large scale enterprise grade AI applications and complex machine systems to solve real world problems.

This coursework is rigorous and is accredited by the computer science department at Case Western Reserve University as 15 credits of graduate study course work. Only students with a strong computer science background, in depth knowledge of programming, and software engineering expertise are eligible to enrol in this intense globally recognised graduate certificate program.

As we consider the implications of advanced digital skills in today’s continuous learning economy, the field of Data Science holds a uniquely central position in providing avenues for retraining and upskilling, ensuring both individuals and organizations remain economically and educationally competitive.

Case Western Reserve University’s Siegal Lifelong Learning Program is excited to offer certificates in Data Science education in conjunction with INSOFE. This credential demonstrates proficiency in some of the foundational skills associated with a number of key areas within the broader field of Data Science.

Program Curriculum


In Computational
Data Science

Globally recognized certification jointly certified by Case Western Reserve University


Data Mining
3 Credits
The purpose of this graduate course is two-fold: (1) broadening students' knowledge and understanding of the current frontiers of data mining research, and (2) teaching data mining research methodology and skills. The core topics to be covered in this course include data pre-processing, data warehouse, association analysis, classification, clustering, deep neural networks and other emerging data mining techniques.
Methods and Algorithms in Machine Learning
3 Credits
Students will be taught concepts such as association rules, decision trees, clustering, support vector machines, ensemble methods, artificial neural networks, and collaborative filtering
Computer Vision
3 Credits
This course provides students with a solid foundation in the key elements of computer vision, emphasizing the practical application of the underlying theory. It focuses mainly on the techniques required to build robot vision applications, but the algorithms can also be applied in other domains such as industrial inspection and video surveillance.
Contemporary Issues in Big data
3 Credits
The course will start with how Hadoop was invented to store and process unstructured data on distributed parallel clusters. In addition, popular on-premises and on-cloud big data infrastructures, such as Apache, Cloudera, AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, Oracle Cloud are compared and contrasted along with examining the evolution of databases, from SQL to NoSQL to NewSQL.
Computer Network
3 Credits
The course covers various aspects of computer networking, including (1) application layer protocols, such as HTTP and SMTP, and basics of networked application engineering, (2) transport layer protocols (TCP/UDP) and principles behind key transport-level services (reliable transmission of unreliable channel, congestion, and flow control, etc.), (3) routing, IP, and SDN, (4) link layer access protocols, wireless networks and mobility.
Quantum Machine Learning
3 Credits
Quantum computation is an alternative paradigm of computing that uses the properties peculiar to quantum systems. This course will consider the mathematical model of a quantum computer and examine a few algorithms which can be executed much faster on a quantum computer than a classical computer.
Directed Independent Research Analysis



Bachelor’s in Computer Science Engineering
Strong computer programming abilities
Prior knowledge of tensorflow and torch

Project Dissertation

All students enrolled in PGP Computational Data Science, will engage on a project that combines their theoretical computer science, programming, and data science knowledge with finding a solution to a real-world industry problem.

Students are required to build an end-to-end solution, test it's application, and present their findings at the end of the program to their peers, mentors, and data scientists. This dissertation will serve as one of the major components to assess student's work in the program and is extremely crucial to receive certification upon completing all other requirements.
