At the end of the programme, the successful students shall have acquired competences in computer science, applied mathematics and statistics, and advanced information processing methods that will allow them to:
Perform in depth analysis of information requirements for solving problems;
Manage large databases;
Make use of such databases with the goal of extracting from them hidden information and knowledge;
Deploy this knowledge in decision support systems or intelligent systems, both in academic and in industrial environments.
Around 50% of the programme is devoted to applications in the field, solving real data mining problems and the implementation of the standard techniques liable to be encountered by students in their future professional activities.
During their obligatory stage in Semester 4, students can integrate research laboratories in Data Mining and/or Knowledge Management for academic research work or join a company that develops solutions and/or applications in DMKM. On the one hand, they will be able to perfect their knowledge and, on the other, to contribute to the growth of this very active field of research. The skills in computer science and applied mathematics that are consolidated in this way by the software present on the market will also enable them to integrate applied research teams in a variety of fields, such as bio computing, information searches on the Internet, Customers Relationship Management (CRM), and so on. The skills acquired in each module are described in the syllabi and in the supplements of the diploma. Teamwork, multidisciplinary opportunities and taking into account the end user of the DMKM’s methods and tools will all be the focus of particular attention and active encouragement.
