Colleges incorporate data science into curriculums

By , IDG News Service |  IT Management

Data science has appeared in the undergraduate and graduate introductory database curriculum as well. The courses now include subject matter on NoSQL and scalable data processing, writes Lazowska. The university is looking into developing a full-time, on-campus master's program after a "banner year in recruiting" gave it the necessary faculty, including four prominent professors in the big data and machine learning fields.

Another certificate program is also being developed around courses that are relevant to data science and already taught at the university. Examples are courses on scalable systems, databases, statistics and visualization, Lazowska says.
