DATA 896 (01) - Self-Designed Analytics Lab I

Analytics Lab I

Credits: 3.0
Term: Fall 2018 - Full Term (08/27/2018 - 12/10/2018)
Class Size:   5  
CRN: 14773
This is the first of a two course self-designed thesis sequence offered under the master's of science degree in analytics. The nature of the class will be applied learning directly around a student directed analytic thesis project. Students will have a choice of either bringing an analytical problem of their interest or one assigned by the instructor out of the ongoing projects in the lab. The student chosen problem will be vetted thoroughly and a decision will be made based on the depth of the proposed data management and analysis proposed submitted in the proposal. Once approved by the committee, the students will collect, clean, merge and create readable analytical files for the project and write a formal 2000+ words report on the data mining part of the project. Prereq: DATA 803 and permission.
