“The summer program in data mining and business intelligence is designed to meet the need for academic training in these fields,” says Prof. Carmi.

The program offers two academic courses where students learn the basic tools of data mining and the use of machine learning techniques for cyber security. It also includes a mandatory internship at BGU’s Cyber Security Research Center.

In addition, students will take part in professional field trips to leading companies to gain practical experience and enhance their understanding in the field.

“The world is increasingly turning to Israel for cyber security, and within Israel, BGU is leading Beer-Sheva to become a major national and international center,” says Prof. Carmi.
