The Certificate in Applied Statistical Modeling (ASM) is available to all undergraduates. The certificate program equips undergraduate students with the tools necessary to understand how to apply statistics to their primary field of study. It is designed to complement diverse degree programs and appeal to students across the university, including in engineering, science, economics, mathematics and many other disciplines.

Certificate students:

  • fulfill a two-course sequence on applied statistics, data mining or machine learning,
  • take one course on the mathematical foundations of statistics, and
  • complete three elective courses (nine hours) in statistics, machine learning, econometrics, etc. from the approved elective list.
