Yearly On-Campus Week
The week is organized into structured, problem-based learning activities that focus on progressing from raw data to analytical findings. Along with hands-on learning, students will attend seminars with faculty members to discuss current research and development activities revolving around Big Data and Data Science. The seminars include human-centric (HCI) data, data-driven journalism, Big Data Security, and the Big Data landscape.
The DSA program at the university is enhanced by the executive session. The cohort students enjoy the opportunities to get to know each other in person and develop relationships networking with their pears, faculty and industry representatives. The one week of concentrated effort, interaction, networking and training enhances the otherwise on-line program.
