The Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) is now inviting applications for its unique Data Mining and Business Intelligence Summer Program.
Data Mining and Business Intelligence focuses on automatic data analysis and the extraction of information and knowledge. Over the last few years, data mining has become a crucial factor in the competitive environment and serves organization as all levels, from operational decisions to the improvement of strategic planning.
BGU’s summer program in data mining and business intelligence will meet the obvious need for academic training in big data, business intelligence and data mining methods, especially for cyber security enhancement. The purpose of the program is to provide both theoretical and practical knowledge, including tools, on data mining.
The program offers two academic courses (each for 3 credits), where students learn the basic tools of data mining and the utilization of machine learning techniques for solving cybersecurity problems. The final project corresponds with the course materials and contributes to the practical experience component. In addition, students will take part in professional field trips to leading companies, in order to enhance their understanding of data mining and cybersecurity. The program will be taught entirely in English.
