Students may also choose to be mentored by a senior expert in data analysis from an Atlanta company.
We provide secure and advanced technology laboratories designed to create innovation in data analytics, generate discoveries and increase research output. Our lab is intended to facilitate collaboration so that students can learn from each other, from business professionals and from faculty. Generating and creating value with new ideas and insights from big data will allow us to provide better solutions to industry leaders and institutions.
