Data Science Program

The Department of Statistics & Data Science at the University of Central Florida (UCF) established a Data Mining Certificate Program in the Fall of 2000 and started its Master’s degree in Data Science in the Fall of 2001. 

The award-winning Data Science Program at the University of Central Florida offers an established educational environment complemented with ongoing industrial collaborations. Officially established in 2000 at UCF and won two KDD Cup Prizes in 2004, the professional staff in the program has pioneered new techniques in data mining and has an ongoing collaboration with SAS® Institute, the world’s leading data mining software provider. Moreover, faculty members have established consulting relationships with industrial clients inspiring relevant research directions, student employment opportunities, and enhanced curriculum case studies.

The aim of the Data Science Program is to train individuals to understand and apply data mining techniques to real-life problems, to solve problems with Enterprise Miner® software as well as to develop SAS® programming expertise.
