Data Systems Specialization

Launch Your Career in Data Systems. Master strategies to manage large data systems in diverse and ever-changing environments.

About This Specialization

Database systems are used to provide convenient access to disk-resident data through efficient query processing, indexing structures, concurrency control, and recovery. This specialization delves into new frameworks for processing and generating large-scale datasets with parallel and distributed algorithms. Courses cover the design, deployment and use of state-of-the-art data processing systems, which provide scalable access to data. All courses in this Specialization form the lecture and skill practice component of a corresponding course in ASU’s online Master of Computer Science Degree. You can apply to the degree program either before or after you begin the Specialization.

    The Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University is one of the largest engineering programs in the United States, with more than 21,000 undergraduate students and more than 4,000 graduate students. We believe that engineering is more than a discipline — it’s a mindset, a way of looking at the world.

    Arizona State University has developed a new model for the American Research University, creating an institution that is committed to excellence, access and impact. ASU measures itself by those it includes, not by those it excludes. ASU pursues research that contributes to the public good, and ASU assumes major responsibility for the economic, social and cultural vitality of the communities that surround it.
