SQL for Data Analysis
This certificate provides an in-depth introduction to SQL. Participants will learn to use SQL to extract and transform data from a variety of sources across different applications and industries.
The focus of this course will be on the vocational, day-to-day use of SQL, rather than more theoretical applications. Classroom exercises, projects and discussions will introduce and reinforce query writing best practices. After completing this certificate, participants will be able to write, debug and optimize SQL queries as well as understand foundational database design concepts. Finally, participants will gain an understanding of the different trade-offs involved with the choice of SQL variants.
To complete the certificate, participants must attend all sections and complete a number of assignments.
SQL for Data Analysis is taught by Nicholas Ross, Practicum Director and Assistant Professor for USF's Master of Science in Data Science program. Prior to joining USF, Professor Ross spent several years working in video games at TinyCo and Sega.
