CSC 3012 - Introduction to Data Science


3 cr. 3 hr. Offered every Fall.

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).

Prerequisite(s): CSC 2560
