Master’s in Data Science

This collaborative degree program is jointly owned by Computer Science and Engineering, the Department of Statistics, the School of Information, and the Department of Biostatistics. The Master’s in Data Science is designed to require every student to receive balanced training in statistical skills and computational skills, combining the educational strengths of the four departments. Graduates of this program are expected to understand data representation and analysis at an advanced level.

With the MS in Data Science all students will be able to: identify relevant datasets, apply the appropriate statistical and computational tools to the dataset to answer questions posed by individuals, organizations or governmental agencies, design and evaluate analytical procedures appropriate to the data, and implement these efficiently over large heterogeneous data sets in a multi-computer environment.

The program is administered by the College of LSA, and detailed program and admissions information can be found on their website.
