This computer will enable you to download the necessary environments, tools, applications, and course materials to engage in classroom exercises, in-class quizzes, midterm and final exams, as well as class and master projects.
DATA 200, Computational Programming for Data Analytics, is a remedial course in addition to the 10 required courses of the MSDA degree. Just like the degree-required courses, the tuition cost of DATA 200 is $2,250.
The status of all students admitted to spring 2020 semester is “Conditionally Classified”. Each student is required to pass the Python Programming Test (waiver exam) in the first week of spring 2020 or the DATA 200 class in spring 2020. The status of a student who has passed the Python Programming Test or the DATA 200 class will be changed from “Conditionally Classified” to “Classified”.
The scope of this test includes Python language, data structures and algorithms. The test consists of multiple choices, short questions, and coding exercises. The test will be conducted from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm on January 25, 2020 (Saturday).

Professors are recruited from current instructor pools from five of SJSU’s colleges: the College of Business, the College of Engineering, the College of Professional and Global Education, the College of Health and Human Sciences, and the College of Science.
MSDA students take this course during their second semester at SJSU. Silicon Valley domain experts and industry leaders are invited to the class to present their case studies and potential industry project topics for students. Students conduct independent research in applying data analytics to specific domains. Student also write effective technical reports and present results about emerging technologies in the area of data analytics in order to satisfy Graduate Writing Assessment Requirement (GWAR).
