Big Data Analytics
The Big Data Analytics mastery course prepares students to demonstrate mastery of data collection, processing, analysis, retrieval, mining, visualization, and prediction. You’ll synthesize methods from information retrieval, statistical data analysis, data mining, machine learning, and other big-data related fields.
UMSI Mastery courses are special types of courses that allow you to demonstrate synthesis of the major theories, methods, and approaches to inquiry and/or schools of practice necessary for entry into a particular career in the information professions.
Students work on semester-long projects that deal with industry-scale data sets and solve real-world problems. Aligned with best industry practices, you’ll work in a fast-paced, collaborative environment and to demonstrate independence and leadership. When you’re finished, you’ll be able to create and use tools to handle very large transactional, text, network, behavioral, and/or multimedia data sets.
Note: Current students should refer to their respective academic advising Canvas sites to ensure they are accessing the most up to date curricular information for their specific cohort.
