Big Data & Analytics Major

The data revolution

Presentation of the Big Data & Analytics Engineering Cycle

Even if the principle of analyzing and processing a large amount of data to extract information is not a new process, it relies in the era of Big Data on infrastructures in technological disruption. We can now process gigantic volumes of data, at an incomparable speed, while integrating a variety of structured or unstructured data (images, videos, sounds, texts, logs, etc.).

The Big Data & Analytics major trains engineers who are capable of supporting companies in their digital transformation process by implementing “Datalakes” projects and analytical applications. These paradigm shifts bring a better understanding of governance issues and data quality.

The objectives of the Big Data & Analytics Engineering Cycle

Understanding the limits of vertical growth in information systems

Master Big Data frameworks such as Hadoop and Spark
