New Concentration Course Option for Summer 2018

Looking for a concentration course option for summer 2018?

IT 499-003 (CRN 43354) Theory and Practice of Evidence-based Reasoning (cross-listed with CRIM 490) is an ITE core concentration course and will also count as a concentration elective for INFS, DTP, HIT, NTEL, and WDM concentrations.

The objective of this course is to teach the basic concepts, principles, methods, architectures, and tools of evidence-based reasoning that enable people to draw conclusions from masses of evidence resulting from extensive investigations in a variety of contexts, including intelligence analysis, cybersecurity, criminal investigations, and military and business inferences and decisions. In addition to its theoretical content, this course has a strong practical component, students using an advanced set of tools to solve complex problems requiring them to “connect the dots” when answer questions based on incomplete, ambiguous, contradictory, or missing information. Part of problem solving will be done collaboratively, in teams, and part individually.

The course is scheduled to meet Wednesdays from 12:45-4:15pm, in Peterson Hall 1113, at the Fairfax campus from May 21-Aug 11, 2018.
