DESCRIPTION - ACCEPTED STUDENTS CATEGORIES: The MSc in Data Science trains students to extract meaningful knowledge out of large quantities of data using computational, statistical and artificially intelligent techniques, to develop explanatory and predictive models and communicate the results in revealing ways.
The graduates of the program acquire knowledge and skills in how to represent, process, analyze, and visualize data, learn and practice modern algorithmic/computational and statistical techniques and tools. They also develop enough theoretical knowledge in probability, statistics, and algebra to understand the key mathematical concepts and tools of these areas and to apply them appropriately in different contexts.
The program is a depth program on Data Science and Data Engineering and its business applications in Finance, Marketing, Biology and Medicine and other areas. It has a large number of electives that allow students to craft their study plan with more of a focus on Statistics, Data Engineering, Machine Learning, or applications.
