The program combines computer science, information science, mathematics, statistics, and probability theory into an integrated curriculum that prepares students for careers or graduate studies in big data analysis, data science, and data analytics. The course work covers exploratory data analysis, data manipulation in a variety of programming languages, large-scale data storage, predictive analytics, machine learning, data mining, and information visualization and presentation. Data Science has emerged as a discipline due to the confluence of two major events: (1) The ability to collect, store, prune, process, and transmit large amounts of data in the cloud. (2) The convergence of programming, statistics, artificial intelligence, and visualization as complementary tools for the analysis and understanding of data.
