Technological and societal changes have led to an explosion of digitally available data. Exploiting this data to its fullest extent, in order to improve decision making, increase productivity, and deepen our understanding of scientific questions, is one of today's major challenges. Data science is an emerging discipline that aims to address this challenge. It is a multi-disciplinary domain, where computer science and mathematics play crucial roles, complemented with human-technology interaction, business models and operations management expertise and skills.
The Data Science in Engineering program is multidisciplinary and includes several core courses as well as great freedom of choice in the form of electives. The freedom you have to determine the content of your program enables you to take your studies in any direction: from a heavily theory-based program to a more practice-based program. Furthermore, you could focus more on computer science or mathematics, or create a mixed profile.
This joint master program of Mathematics and Computer Science can be studied as a special track in either the Master of Computer Science and Engineering or the Master of Industrial and Applied Mathematics.
