Data-intensive computing is a collective solution to address the data deluge that has been brought about by tremendous advances in distributed systems and Internet-based computing.
There is tremendous need for analyzing the data to discover knowledge, to understand behaviors, and to mine for patterns. These discoveries and patterns of data are expected to impact a wide range of applications from the social sciences to medical sciences. The scale, the complexity and the types of the data to be managed has given rise to newer data models and algorithms. Data-intensive computing deals with these newer data and computational models and related algorithms and data structures. This newly created certificate program aims to improve the preparedness of our students for data-intensive computing.
