ASU Center for Assured and Scalable Data Engineering (CASCADE)
This Computer Science MS/MCS program is designed for graduate students who want to pursue a thorough education and research in the area of big data systems. The goal of this concentration is to provide students the knowledge, skills and the advanced research expertise in designing scalable (parallel, distributed, and real-time) systems for acquiring, storing, processing, and accessing large-scale heterogeneous multi-source data and in using analytical tools to mine information from the data. The graduates will be able to pick and deploy the appropriate data management, processing, and analysis systems with the suitable structured or unstructured data model for the particular task and domain application needs. The concentration will meet the growing need for data scientists and engineers that can architect, implement, and manage large data systems and, thus, students will have a competitive advantage to secure employment.
Students in this concentration must take the following 15 credit hours of coursework:
Required Courses (9 credit hours)
Student must choose two of the following courses (6 credit hours)
Support for CASCADE comes from ASU OKED, Fulton Schools of Engineering, and CIDSE. CASCADE is also supported partially by NSF-IIP Grant #1464579.
