Structure and Certificates

The Core Program

The so-called core program of the data.RWTH project has a modular structure. It is divided into a basic and a specialization area. After completing the program-specific modules and a final examination, students will be awarded a Micro Bachelor Data Literacy.

The overall program as well as the Micro Bachelor Certificate are currently being (further) developed. We are happy to answer any questions you may have.
The compulsory basic modules can be taken without prior knowledge. They cover data literacy across all disciplines, following along the process of data-driven inquiry and decision-making. Students acquire basic knowledge and skills in the identification, selection, analysis, interpretation, visualization, decision-making, and post-processing of data based on small and large data collections.
The basic courses are offered in both two- and three-semester form, both with the same content. In order to obtain the Micro Bachelor certificate, either the two modules of the two-semester version (Basic Courses I + II) or the three modules of the three-semester version (Compact Courses I + II + III) must be completed.
The specialization area of the data.RWTH program is composed of various modules offerend at RWTH and aims to deepen data-related competencies in a subject-specific manner. Please contact us for further information.
