Module Code: DTS301TC
Module Title: Data Mining
Module Level: Level 3
Module Credits: 5.00
Academic Year: 2022/23
Semester: SEM1
Originating Department: Shool of AI and Advanced Computing
Pre-requisites: N/A
This module covers methodology, major software tools and applications in data mining. By introducing principal ideas in statistical learning, the course will help students to understand conceptual underpinnings of methods in data mining. It focuses more on usage of existing software packages (mainly in R) than developing the algorithms by the students. Students will be required to work on projects to practice applying existing software.
Learning outcomes 
A. Introduce students to the basic concepts and techniques of Data Mining

B. Demonstrate knowledge of statistical data analysis techniques used in decision making

C. Apply principles of Data Mining to the analysis of large-scale problems

D. Develop skills of using recent data mining software for solving practical problems

E. Gain experience of doing independent study and research
