Today we experience a true deluge of data which record and shape our lives, ranging from large global issues such as climate change to the smallest local problem such as controlling a thermostat. The critical screening and processing of Big Data has become a world-wide effort, requiring academic attention from diverse disciplines. Hence this programme at School of Science.
‘Big Data’ refers to the collection of data sets whose scale, diversity and complexity require new architecture, techniques, algorithms and analysis to manage it, and extract value and hidden knowledge from it. Use of information has become central for the survival and development of the human race. The challenge is to develop theoretical and innovative scientific and technological solutions to cater to the needs of the industry, the society and the environment.
Given the wide gap between demand and supply of scientists, technologists and key experts in the domain of Data Analytics today, Renaissance University has chalked devised a five year B.Sc. M.Sc. Integrated programme. This programme will help the interested young minds for the academic analysis of such Big Data and its applications in the society today, from business concerns to social practices and cultural change.
