Courses

Coverage of advanced topics of data mining and its applications. The course will review related mathematics and then focus on data mining core algorithms and advanced modeling including regression, dimensionality reduction, support vector machines, clustering, graph theory, and frequent pattern mining. The course will also explore several real-world problems and discuss strategies for large-scale data. Requires pre-knowledge from an undergraduate course on algorithms and data structures.

Expert system architectures: forward-production, logic programming, deductive retrieval, and semantic network systems. The course also treats natural language systems, illustrative working systems, and AI programming.

Theories and models in visual analytics. Visual analytics covers cognitive theories, advanced computational models and usable visual interface for sensemaking of data. This course is intended for graduate students interested in using visualizations for data analytics in their own work, or students interested in building visual analytics tools.

Study under the supervision of a faculty member in an area not otherwise part of the discipline's course offerings. Conditions and hours to be arranged.

Prerequisites: Completion of three core courses.   Development of a detailed, significant project in computer science under the close supervision of a faculty member, perhaps as one member of a student team. This project may be a software implementation, a design effort, or a theoretical or practical written analysis. Project report with optional oral presentation must be evaluated by three faculty members including the project supervisor.

Prerequisite: Completion of three core courses. Research leading to submission of a formal thesis. This course provides a thesis experience, which offers a student the opportunity to work on a comprehensive research topic in the area of computer science in a scientific manner. Topic to be agreed in consultation with a supervisor. A written thesis must be completed in accordance with the rules of the Graduate School and the College of Engineering. Graded A-F.

A team-based learning experience that gives students the opportunity to synthesize prerequisite course material and to conduct real-world analytics projects using large data sets of diverse types and sources. Students work in independent teams to design, implement, and evaluate an appropriate data integration, analysis, and display system. Oral and written reports and ethical aspects are highlighted.
