Data Analytics – DTA

Overview

Data analytics is an interdisciplinary field that aims to draw meaningful insight underlying data using various techniques based on theories from many branches including mathematics, probability, statistics, optimization, and computer science. The techniques can be applied to various domains including Electrical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Financial Engineering, Agriculture, Transportation, Network Engineering and Atmospheric Sciences. Our graduate program in data analytics aims to introduce essential techniques and tools used for students who are upon successfully completing this program, to be able to

  • Understand natural characteristics of data collected with the presence of randomness; clean up and manage the data appropriately using prior knowledge of the application domain of interest.
  • Formulate quantitative models to address research or practical questions in engineering applications.
  • Apply appropriate quantitative and statistical methods to make inference or prediction driven by data analysis.
  • Provide critical evaluation of the statistical methods available in various domains.
  • Communicate key knowledge and interpret information learned from the data to broad audiences.

Why studying Data Analytics at CUEE ?

  1. Various available courses across many disciplines. In addition to available courses by CUEE, Participants can also enroll in relevant courses from many other departments or faculties in Chulalongkorn university, ranging from mathematics, applied statistics, or computer science.
  2. Comprehensive foundation on mathematics and analysis. The key ingredient behind the success of statistical learning tools is from theories supporting statistical models and methods. We focus on developing analytical skills for participants to be able to construct predictive models and develop suitable statistical/numerical methods to the problem.
  3. Exposure to diverse engineering applications. Participants can explore research projects across various fields including renewable energy application, smart health technology, multimedia signal processing, embedded and control systems, and telecommunication and transportation networks. Students can conduct collaborative research with five Chulalongkorn research units (RUs) focusing on artificial intelligence, machine learning, smart grid technology, intelligent control, wireless network and future internet, smart light and lighting technology.
