    CCSU Launches Online Certificate in Data Mining

    Central Connecticut State University (CCSU) announces the launching of
    a Certificate program in data mining, available completely online.
    The Certificate in Data Mining is the world’s first such program
    to be made available completely online, according to Daniel T. Larose,
    Ph.D., Associate Professor of Statistics and Program Coordinator for
    Data Mining at CCSU.

    The Certificate consists of four undergraduate courses, and may be
    completed in one year. The thrust of the program is to provide
    students with practical, hands-on experience with what the MIT
    Technology Review called one of the ten emerging technologies that
    will change the world (MIT Technology Review, Jan / Feb 2001).
    Students will apply such methodologies as decision trees, market
    basket analysis, neural networks, classification rules, and cluster
    detection. Students will gain strong exposure to the Clementine data
    mining software suite from SPSS, which is ideally suited to an online
    program, since student versions are available.

    The first course in the Certificate sequence begins online in
    September. Also beginning in September is an online graduate course
    in data mining, along with online courses in mathematical statistics,
    experimental design, JAVA, and calculus. Online registration is
    taking place now at onlinecsu.ctstateu.edu. For more information,
    visit the Data Mining at CCSU website at www.math.ccsu.edu/dm or
    contact the Program Coordinator at larosed@ccsu.edu.
