SJSU is home to Silicon Valley Big Data and Cybersecurity Center. U.S. Department of Homeland Security and National Security Agency have designated the university as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance/Cybersecurity Education for academic year 2014-2019.

“This certificate is presented in recognition of significant contributions in meeting the national demand for information assurance/cybersecurity education, developing a growing number of professionals with information assurance and cybersecurity expertise in various disciplines, and ultimately contributing to the protection of the national information infrastructure.”

Our Big Data program is specially designed to provide participants a foundation and practical knowledge on how to manage and draw intelligence from massive amounts of data. Specifically, Its target audiences are those technical people who want a jumpstart on Big Data with a specific focus on Hadoop, Spark, and Cassandra.

Participants will also learn various aspects of underlying theories and how Spark and Hadoop can provide additional search and analytic features with ample hands-on experiences to get familiar with industry-specific applications, and practice how to utilize them to formulate Big Data solutions.
