IOE Syllabus of Data Mining

Objective: To introduce the fundamental principles, algorithms and applications of intelligent data processing and analysis and to provide an in depth understanding of various concepts and popular techniques used in the field of data mining. The subject code of Data Mining which is set as elective I by IOE is CT725. Data mining can be chosen by Computer (BCT) and Electronics & Communication (BEX) students for elective in Fourth Year – First Part.

It will have a total of 80 marks of final exam and 20 marks as internal marking. The chapter along with their credit hours and marking scheme are as below. There might be minor errors while posting and it would be very helpful if you could point that from comment or any medias: facebook, twitter.

UPDATE: We have compiled all the notes of Data Mining according to the following syllabus. Access Chapter Wise Notes of Data Mining.
