    CCSU Launches Online Master of Science in Data Mining

    Central Connecticut State University (CCSU) announces the launching of
    an online Master of Science program in Data Mining, the first such
    program to be offered online.

    Data mining is the search for interesting patterns and trends in large
    databases using statistical methods. The MIT Technology Review chose
    data mining as one of ten emerging technologies that will change the
    world. Data mining expertise is the most sought after among
    information technology professionals, according to the 1999
    Information Week National Salary Survey. In a 2001 KDNuggets survey,
    27% of data mining professionals earned more than $100,000 (US)
    annually.

    All courses in the data mining MS program are offered online. This
    means that class is as close as your computer, whether you live in
    Beijing, New York, Singapore, or Canton. Further, all courses are
    asynchronous, meaning that students can work when they want to work,
    whether at 3:00 in the afternoon, or 3:00 in the morning.

    The 33-credit program, which can be completed in two years, consists
    of courses in data mining, artificial intelligence, statistical
    analysis, and computer science. The MS in data mining is fully
    licensed by the State of Connecticut Department of Higher Education.

    The program stresses the solution of real-world problems, using
    applications and case studies, while gaining a deep appreciation of
    the underlying models. These applications include customer
    relationship management, credit-card fraud, and profit/cost
    optimization. Students will apply methodologies such as decision
    trees, market basket analysis, neural networks, association rules, and
    cluster detection. Students will gain strong exposure to
    state-of-the-art software such as the Clementine data mining suite
    from SPSS.

    Courses available online, starting in January, include Introduction to
    Data Mining, Data Mining Methods, Linear Models, Foundations of
    Computer Science, Database Concepts, and Mathematical Statistics II.
    Some prerequisite courses are also offered online. To register for
    these courses, proceed to OnlineCSU at http://onlinecsu.ctstateu.edu/.

    apply, please visit www.ccsu.edu/datamining, or contact Program
    Director Daniel T. Larose, Ph.D. at larosed@ccsu.edu or 860-832-2862.
