The University of Missouri College of Engineering has just been awarded a five-year, $12 million contract to deliver a comprehensive data science education program that will provide cutting-edge analytical training for the NGA workforce and potentially other members of the U.S. Intelligence Community (IC). This new program will address key education and training needs identified by NGA.
The program is a collaboration between the MU College of Engineering’s Center for Geospatial Intelligence (CGI) and the MU Informatics Institute’s Data Science and Analytics (DSA) master’s degree program. The newly established effort is part of the NGA College’s Learning Outreach program that partners with qualified academic institutions and industry partners to address key education and training gaps within the NGA. Mizzou will provide a comprehensive data science education program that includes databases and programming, statistical analyses and predictive modeling, data visualization and data mining, cloud-based computing, and machine learning among other specialties that will help develop the NGA and IC workforce.
