Big Data Summer Institute

Transforming Analytical Learning in the Era of Big Data June 5 - July 14, 2017

NIH supportThe Big Data Summer Institute is a six-week interdisciplinary training and research program in biostatistics that introduces undergraduate students to the intersection of big data and human health — a rapidly growing field that uses quantitative analysis to help solve scientific problems and improve people’s lives. Drawing from the expertise and experience of outstanding faculty of several departments at the University of Michigan — biostatistics, statistics, and electrical engineering and computer science — the institute exposes undergraduate students to diverse experiences and techniques that distinguishes it from any other undergraduate summer program in biostatistics in the country.

The Big Data Summer Institute is hosted by the University of Michigan School of Public Health. All coursework takes place at the school, on the University of Michigan campus in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
