Transforming Analytical Learning in the Era of Big Data
June 17 - July 27, 2018
The 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.
