MS Computing and Data Sciences

Objectives

• To equip students to transform data into actionable insights to make complex business decisions

• To enable students, understand and analyze a problem and arrive at computable solutions

• To expose students to the set of technologies that match those solutions

• To gain hands-on experience on data-centric tools for statistical analysis, visualization and big data applications at the same rigorous scale as in a practical data science project

• To understand the implications of handling data in terms of data security and business ethics

Role and Scope

The amount of data is growing so rapidly and their significance in the emerging societal set ups such as the pervasive Internet of Things. The way one imagines data is going to change in the coming years. Both Big Data Analytics and pervasive computing hinge on the principle axis of data analytics.
