Learn the basics of database systems as well as data mining methods for extracting insight from structured datasets (e.g.
for a sales recommendation system) as well as unstructured data (e.g. Discover the fundamentals of software engineering, including function-based and object-oriented methods for analysis and design.
You’ll also learn to retrieve information from unstructured data sources, such as natural language text.
Coursework on the cloud computing technology, infrastructure and application development that is essential for supporting the discovery and extraction of knowledge from big data.
After the basic are covered, a series of applications will be presented covering a range of applied geophysical problems.
The module covers: This aim of the module is to introduce standard computational methods to solve mathematical and geophysical problems such as heat diffusion, wave propagation and stress equilibrium.
Illinois Computer Science offers a specialized track that includes both MCS degree requirements and data science-focused coursework.
This degree is right for anyone who not only wants to learn to extract knowledge and insights from massive data sets, but also wants full command of the computational infrastructure to do so.
