MSc in Applied Data Science at University of Stavanger provides students an opportunity to extract relevant information from a compilation of large datasets from different sources. The ability to create, manage and exploit data has become one of the most important challenges for practitioners in most disciplines, sectors, and industries.
Students with expertise in Applied Data Science will be highly sought after in the future labor market, where they will contribute to the development of smart solutions and digitization.
The new study comes in the wake of Big Data and the need to find useful information in them. Analysis, understanding, and use of these data require interdisciplinary skills and knowledge. Applied Data Science creates opportunities for students from different engineering backgrounds who want to focus more on digitization and data analysis.
