This four-week English-taught program provides both theoretical and practical knowledge on data mining. Participants take two courses, "Advanced Methods in Data Mining" and "Machine Learning-Based Solutions", and participate in a mandatory one-week internship at BGU's Cyber Security Research Center. In addition, students take part in professional field trips to leading companies in order to enhance their understanding of data mining and cyber security.
In 2012, Israel’s Prime Minister declared that Beer Sheva and BGU are to become the country’s cyber security command center. Consequently, the Cyber Security Research Center and the Big Data Lab were established at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in 2013. These developments have transformed BGU, with its research centers and leading academic faculty, together with the Advanced Technologies Park, into an ideal environment for a summer program in these fields.
