Concentrations

Data Analytics

Data analytics includes the mining, analyzing, and visualizing data for use in strategic decision making, improving healthcare, tracking, marketing, Geo-Information Systems, research and more! The advent of ubiquitous computers, networks and their ability to interact with the physical world has led to an increasing explosion of data. This presents both opportunities and challenges. Data can lead to new scientific and medical discoveries in areas such as genomics. Increased data availability and analysis capability can improve the quality of social, economic and business modeling. But, data can also be misused as well. Data analytics combines all of these aspects – handling large amounts of data, methods of sophisticated data analysis, and awareness, and safeguards for data security and privacy issues.
