CSC 7015 - Introduction to Data Science


3 cr.
Human beings now generate, and collect, massive amounts of data. As big data becomes the norm in modern business and research, there is a growing demand for individuals who are able to make decisions and derive meaningful insight from large-scale, heterogeneous data.  A data scientist is a person who has the skills, knowledge, and ability to extract actionable knowledge from the raw data.  This course will cover the topics needed to solve data-science problems, which include data preparation (collection & Integration), data characterization and presentation, and data analysis (experimentation & observational studies).  Related courses are data mining, machine learning, and data visualization.

Prerequisite(s): CSC 1550 and MATH 1700 or equivalent course/work experience.
