M.S. Data Science

Housed in the Department of Computer Science and offered in collaboration with the Department of Mathematical Sciences, the interdisciplinary Data Science program offers you the choice of a Computational or a Statistics track, while equipping you with the fundamentals and application tools to solve Data Science problems.

Summary

  • Provide training in three core components of data science: machine learning, big data analysis and programming for Data Science.
  • Provide training in applied statistics, particularly¬†statistical inference.
  • Cover applications and contemporary topics in Data Science.
  • Apply statistical methods for decision making.
  • Build and analyze predictive models from data using machine learning and statistical inference.
  • Program Data Science applications in high-level languages such as Python and R.
  • Analyze large datasets using high-performance computing and distributed computing methods.
  • Compare the benefits and drawbacks of contemporary and advanced topics in Data Science.
  • Make informed architectural decisions based on a good understanding of how available technologies differ and complement each other and what scalability and¬†consistency trade-offs they provide.
