Big Data and Data Science gain increasing attention and significance, as they are discovered by scientific and economic domains. Today Data Science and Big Data advance into various facets of our daily life. The purpose of this practical course is to make the students familiar with the practical approach of Big Data applications and Data Science. By learning the handling with state-of-the-art Big Data tools the core concepts of dealing with data streams and the Big Data process are conveyed.

Besides the aspects of data-driven analysis, this course aims to foster the practice of agile project management methods and the application of software engineering techniques. In particular, the students will implement a data driven system based on the cloud processing platform Apache Flink. Based on this platform, the system will incorporate the complete process of knowledge discovery including data preprocessing, data analysis, evaluation and processing analysis results.

The practical course is introduced with a kick-off meeting at the start of the semester.

Furthermore, this course targets the responsible and efficient handling of limited resources.

The lab course is funded by the ZD.B Innovationslabor Big Data Science.

Eligibility Requirements

As the lab course will cover several advanced topics in data science and big data analytics, successful participation in at least one of the following lectures or similar prior experience is recommended:

  • Knowledge Discovery in Databases I
  • Knowledge Discovery in Databases II
  • Big Data Management and Analytics
  • Machine Learning

The lab course requires skills and experience in programming and software engineering.
