What will I learn?

The specialized Master's program in data science, offered in collaboration with the Department of Mathematics as well as the Department of computer science, provides a high quality education geared towards nurturing the next generation of data scientists.

Computers have fundamentally changed the way the world produces, manages, processes and analyzes data. In light of the continuous growth of data all around the globe, the question of how we can use data to gain valuable insights is more important than ever. How can we extract relevant information from massive amounts of data? In which way can computers learn from experience to make intelligent decisions? These questions are key to the specialized Master’s program in data science.

Content and Structure

Research in the field of data science requires solid skills in managing and storing massive amounts of data as well as the ability to develop efficient mathematical algorithms for data analysis. These techniques are employed in complex applications in engineering and science.

Part of the program is the Data Science Laboratory, where students tackle specific and practical problems of interdisciplinary applications. In this course students engage in all tasks - from the process modeling to the implementation and validation of data science techniques.
