Data Science Methodology students will gain a solid knowledge of Statistics, Machine Learning theory and methods such as Reinforcement Learning and Deep Learning, Optimization and Computing. The program also prepares students to critically assess the validity and performance of existing methods, and to address potential limitations by developing new ones. Students will learn how to apply classroom examples using real data and answering concrete questions from the perspectives of different sectors. Through an independent master's project or an industrial practicum conducted with local businesses or research teams, students have the opportunity to solve actual analytics problems hands-on.
