The purpose of the Summer Program in Data Mining and Business Intelligence is to provide both theoretical and practical knowledge, including tools, on data mining. The program offers two academic courses (each for 3 credits), where students learn the basic tools of data mining and the utilization of machine learning techniques for solving cyber security problems. The program includes a mandatory one week internship at BGU’s Cyber Security Research Center. The internship corresponds with the course materials and contributes the practical experience component. In addition, students will take part in professional field trips to leading companies, in order to enhance their understanding of data mining and cyber security.
The global health program at BGU provides students with a comprehensive learning experience that combines classes, professional field trips and practicum. We believe a large part of the learning occurs in the field. That’s why students will not only hear about global health but they will also visit places and meet people that actually practice or demonstrate aspects of global public health in Israel. Students will also be assigned to an Israeli institution/organization that applies Israeli innovation in global public health for one week and learn about the realities of global health first hand.
