Data Science Dojo and UNMCE Partner for a Data Science Certificate Program

Data Science Dojo (DSD) and University of New Mexico Continuing Education (UNMCE) have partnered to deliver a 5-Day Data Science Certificate Program.

This partnership will allow Data Science Dojo to offer their top-rated curriculum now backed by an accredited university.

Located in Albuquerque, the University of New Mexico (UNM) was founded in 1889 as the "flagship institution" of New Mexico. With an active network of more than 160,000 alumni, 200+ degree options, and a campus covering nearly 800 acres today, UNM is living up to its founding vision.

UNMCE offers courses for professional development, personal enrichment, and lifelong learning. Although most classes and trainings aren't offered for academic credit, certifications are available upon request for some Business, Professional, and IT courses.

What does this mean for you?

The partnership between DSD and UNMCE will allow everyone to attend an intensive, short-duration data science training with the stamp of approval from the University of New Mexico. The UNMCE data science certificate will only be offered at the Albequerque campus where you will be able to receive continuing education credit.

What's the difference between certified and non-certified?

This bootcamp will be treated exactly like all of DSD's other top-rated bootcamps. The only difference is the training hosted at UNMCE is backed by an accredited university. You will receive a certificate of achievement jointly offered by Data Science Dojo and the University of New Mexico.
