As enrollment in graduate programs in data science and big data booms, Dr. Brad Rubin has been charged with leading efforts in recruiting and visibility of the University of St. Thomas Center of Excellence for Big Data.
On June 17th, UST's Graduate Programs in Software (GPS) department celebrated 30 years of graduate software engineering education. Cloudera's Chief Strategy Officer, Mike Olson, presented the evening's keynote speech:"The Engineer's Century: Data, Innovation, and Society in the Next 100 Years."
Given the demand for expertise in dealing with Big Data, and given the specific aspects of expertise in all facets of Big Data across the Graduate Programs in Software (GPS) faculty, UST launched the Center of Excellence for Big Data.
Dr. Rubin, associate professor of Graduate Programs in Software, is featured as a technology expert in the article "Navigating The Technology Galaxies" in Twin Cities Business which discusses security challenges along with social media opportunities and pitfalls and how these will require companies to constantly update their technology strategies.
