The Applied Data Analytics Certificate (ADAC) from BCIT Computing provides the computer science foundations for data analytics systems. Graduates of the program will be able to design data analytics projects to help organizations across sectors make informed and actionable decisions.

Students learn how to determine data requirements, plan for the entire data life cycle, model data, and use IT tools to mine data for business intelligence and data-driven decision making.

Starting with relational database systems, students have a foundation for data warehouse, data quality improvement, and visual analytics.

Statistics for data analytics, IT and Internet Law, and IT security are required courses, along with Hadoop and Python for an introduction to Big Data.

Participants have over a dozen elective courses to choose from, including UX/UI, web, database development, several business intelligence options, performance management and evidence-based decision making.

After the electives are completed, two advanced courses in statistical techniques and data analytics are required.

Depending on electives, students may be able to complete this BCIT credential with as few as sixteen courses, part-time in the evenings and on weekends.

This program is designed for course by course delivery in part-time studies.

Note: Those students who hold a bachelor’s degree or higher, and are looking for a business analytics program to learn how to harness data to make data-driven business decisions, may want to consider the BCIT School of Business Graduate Certificate in Business Analytics.

This program helped me get my resume in good shape for new job opportunities in the analytics industry. I was a marketer, so the combination of marketing work experience and analytics skills made finding good work relatively easy. Having said that, this program won't set you on the PhD track. It's a lot of excel work and all very applied in nature. If you want to learn big data and programming then I'd strongly recommend looking elsewhere. Probably 90% of the class had an IT or business background coming into the program, so some work experience will help you out.
