Suh, Sang C. Practical Application of Data Mining. Jones and Bartlett Learning,
CSCI 526 or similar course in database design.
General theory, concept, and techniques related to intelligent database design
are discussed in this course. Emphasis is placed on the statistical discovery of
knowledge and structure in data stores. Additional topics to be covered
include neural networks, multimedia, and text retrieval. A moderate‐size
semester project will be developed and demonstrated for the practice of the
design of an intelligent database.
1. Students will understand the current status of data mining methodology in industry and
2. Students will learn teamwork techniques for large intelligent database projects through brain
storming and joint requirement planning.
3. Students will learn and use effective tools for web navigation and program integration
4. Students will identify dirty data sources and construct data cleaning programs.
5. Students will learn algorithms and construct programs for capturing association rules.
6. Students will master statistical data mining techniques and write programs for trend analysis.
7. Students will implement code for generating decision rules using decision tree based
8. Students will apply divide‐and‐conquer approaches to integrate small programs into a
solution to a large program.
9. Students will learn to apply various data mining techniques into various areas of different
10. Students will design a large scale software project with a focus on business intelligence.
11. Students will present the initial, intermediate, and final delivery of a system using CMM and
rapid prototyping.
Final Project
The final project can be done in small groups (with less than 4 people) or in singleton groups as
individual projects. The instructor will make a decision after a cooperative discussion with the
Letter grades will be assigned according to the following scale:
A - at least 90% of the total points
B - at least 80% of the total points
C - at least 70% of the total points
D - at least 60% of the total points
F - less than 60% of the total points
It is the student’s responsibility to login and check the course eCollege site daily for
announcements, assignments and course-related content. It is very important that students follow
the instructions carefully on the assignments/projects. You should do your own work on
assignments, projects and exams. Copying another student’s work is not acceptable. As stated
in the “Academic Ethics” section, any indication of cheating and/or plagiarism on an
assignment/project or exam will be an automatic 0 (zero) for all students involved.
Deadlines: It is the student’s responsibility to have all assignments/projects ready on time by the
given due date. Late assignments may not be accepted or may be penalized and assignment may
not be accepted beyond a certain time. Credit will be given for ONLY those exams, assignments
and projects turned in no later than the deadline as announced by the instructor of this class,
unless prior arrangement has been made with the instructor.
Students are expected to attend every class. Student participation will be graded by the level of
class participation and attendance. The student may fail the course if the attendance is below a
certain percentage. If a student is absent from class on the due date of any assignment, they are
expected to make alternative arrangements to assure that the assignment is turned in ON TIME.
If a student is absent from class on an exam day, they will receive 0 (zero) for that exam. There
will be no makeup exams in general. Makeup exams may be given to students under extreme
circumstances, such as hospitalization, serious injury, death in the family, etc, with prior
notification and valid documents.
Any student wishing to withdraw from the course must do so officially as outlined in the class
schedule. The instructor cannot drop or withdraw any student.
“All students enrolled at the University shall follow the tenets of common decency and
acceptable behavior conducive to a positive learning environment.” (See Student’s Guide
Handbook, Policies and Procedures, Conduct). All phones, pagers, and other communication
devices are to be turned off or place on silent mode during class. Instances of academic
dishonesty will not be tolerated. Any indication of cheating and/or plagiarism on an
exam/assignment/project will be an automatic 0 (zero) for the exam/assignment/project for all
students involved. Yet, based on cheating and plagiarism activity in any section of the class,
instructor holds the right to give F grade for the course to the identified student(s).
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a federal anti-discrimination statute that provides
comprehensive civil rights protection for persons with disabilities. Among other things, this
legislation requires that all students with disabilities be guaranteed a learning environment that
provides for reasonable accommodation of their disabilities. If you have a disability requiring an
accommodation, please contact:
