 Do you plan to do your Data Science certifications in US Universities? Then you must keep in mind some basic points:

 1. Knowledge Requirement:Admission to the MS course in Data Science requires but specific mathematical competencies. Your previous course of study should include Calculus I, Linear Algebra, Basic Computer Science (CS-101 programming course), One of Calculus II, Probability, Statistics, or an advanced physics, engineering, or econometrics course.

 2. Preference Given:The students with prior exposure to machine learning, computational statistics, data mining, large-scale scientific computing, and operations research get preference during the application process. This knowledge helps the students in the primary courses too.

 3. Examinations: Good GRE (Graduate record examination) or GMAT (Graduate management admission test) scores are mandatory for application. The applicants whose native language is not English and who have not received a university degree in an English-speaking country must produce TOEFL (Test of English as a foreign language) score.

 4.Documents: You need to submit official college transcripts and letters of recommendation from the professors.

 5. Choice of University: The market research says that by 2018, there would be a requirement of 140,000 to 190,000 data scientists in US. So Data Science is a subject in demand. Before you apply to a university you should verify the background of the program and the faculty. A partnership with business and research institutions should be there. You should be sure about the job placement figures. A good course of Data Science should offer rigorous theoretical and practical training. In addition to technical courses, communications, project management, and professional ethics courses should be there.
