Last week, I was asked by my course coordinator to do a photo shoot for Temasek Poly’s newly launched course, Diploma in Big Data Management & Governance. It came out in The New Paper last week.
I don’t really like to do a photo shoot but at the same time, I don’t want to reject my CC request.
Anyway, that’s not my main point. I’m here to explain more about this new course. It’s my twin diploma. It’s pretty similar to my course. Same same but different. LOL
So what’s Big Data Management and Governance is all about ? It’s a course with BIG demand, BIG opportunities, BIG traits and BIG potential !
Big Data is a BIG DEAL !
Have you ever wondered how much information there is about you in cyberspace and in various computer systems ? Do you know you are generating information all the time when you use Facebook, buy something on eBay, post comments on a blog, buy a movie ticket ? Information is power. If you are someone with a curious mind who wants to be in control of information, then this course is for you.
What will you learn ?
In your first year, you will learn how to extract information and evaluate it. You will also obtain a strong foundation in Computer Science.
In your second year, you will learn how to manage Big Data, such as those that Facebook and Google collect and store. You will also learn to ensure the quality of the data you extract and how to manage its privacy, because wrong data can result in wrong predictions that may have a significant impact on businesses and lives.
By your third year, you would have learnt how to ‘mine’ Big Data. You will work with companies or organisations, locally or overseas, on Big Data projects.
Cool isn’t it ?
If you are interested to know more about this course, feel free to visit their website or visit their booth during Open House on January 8-10.
