About

The Master of Science in Digital Humanities from Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne offers a program of excellence in both the Data Science and Humanities fields that brings graduates to positions of responsibility in the new rich content systems of information.

Overview

As data proliferate and play an ever-growing role in our life decisions, the division between engineers who design algorithms and social science experts who interpret those data cannot hold anymore. The content industry via media, entertainment and culture, together with the public make an extensive use of Big Data and Machine Learning techniques.

The Digital Humanities program from Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne offers a high level qualification in Data Science as well as in Humanities and Social Sciences, on a theoretical but also on an operational level in order to manage all the steps in the chain of rich data processing. 

This encompasses the creation of data-harvesting processes, the choice and design of algorithms, the maintenance of databases and archives, the design of user experience, and the interpretation to propose.

Career options:

In this growing field, many opportunities in cultural institutions in Switzerland and abroad are available. A graduate of the Master of Science MSc in Digital Humanities will be an asset in institutions like BnF Biblissima, Harvard Library, the Swiss National Library, national and international museums and the archives of International Organisations.

Moreover, the graduates will have access to jobs in companies like Facebook, Google, and Microsoft, and will have opportunities to work in companies like Nespresso, Cisco, or for radio and television networks.
