Sensor & Data Fusion Certificate

Respond more rapidly to threats and problems by learning to fuse information from multiple sensors. Data fusion, an emerging technology, is the process of automatically filtering, aggregating and extracting desired information from multiple sensors and sources, and integrating and interpreting the data.

The military, Department of Homeland Security and a growing number of sectors, such as manufacturing and the automotive industry, are experiencing a greater need to use sensors and data fusion to address concerns in technological advancement and to overcome challenges. The courses in the certificate offer mission-critical training designed to advance your sensor and data fusion knowledge.
