Entry requirements

Note: Admission requirements for non-programme students usually also include admission requirements for the programme and threshold requirements for progression within the programme, or corresponding.

Prerequisites

Skills in programming and computer graphics programming, mathematics, course Information Visualization or equivalent.

 

Intended learning outcomes

After completing the course the student should be able to:

  •   Examine new, complex data sets and identify relevant features which might be extracted
  •   Select and apply advanced algorithmic methods for analysis of large complex data sets to determine valuable results
  •   Address issues with very large data sets and develop approaches to the 'big data' problem
  •   Display extracted relevant information from such data sets using standard visualization methods

Course content

This course builds upon the course Information Visualization, with a focus on the data modelling, mining and analysis techniques with are the foundation of modern visual data analysis methodology. Such methods are becoming very important as the scale of data available for analysis expands, leading to the so-called 'big data' problem affecting business, healthcare, government, science and industry.

Teaching and working methods

The course is composed of lectures, laboratory assignments, seminar sessions and a substantial project work.
