Advanced Certificate Programs

Our Advanced Certificate programs are non-degree certificates available for students enrolled in a PhD degree program at CEU. The certificates are offered by the Department of Network and Data Science (DNDS) at CEU.

We have 3 such programs:

Advanced Certificate in Data Analysis

Advanced Certificate in Data Science

Advanced Certificate in Network Science

Please click on the above links to see the curriculum and requirements of each program.

If you successfully complete an Advanced Certificate Program, you will receive a certificate in the form of a diploma supplement when you graduate.

Please note that although Masters students are welcome to attend these courses, unfortunately they will not receive a certificate, as the certificate is PhD-level and can only be issued with a doctoral degree.

How to enroll in the Certificate Programs

  1. Please discuss with your supervisor whether they support your plan to complete this certificate.
  2. If they do, then just register for the required courses for grade in SiTS (please always check the pre-requisites and whether there is a cap).
  3. A few months before you graduate, please contact the DNDS Coordinator, Olga Peredi, letting her know that you are about to graduate and that you have completed the requirements for the Advanced Certificate. She will check, and if it is indeed the case, she will notify the Student Records Office.
  4. When you receive your PhD diploma, you will receive the certificate alongside it.
