Overview

Master's Degree Program with Employability Focus

Become a Data Scientist by mastering the skills to interpret data, formulate insights, and communicate your knowledge by applying machine learning, managing large data sets, and generating interesting visualisations.

As data accumulates across broad sectors of industry and academia we see a need for data scientists equipped with skills to assist with data-based decision making. For example, businesses are using data to determine insurance coverage, to make marketing decisions, to offer recommendations to customers, and to provide more effective health care. A famous example from academia is the determination of the Higgs Boson from simulated data with machine learning methods.

In order to be selected for our program, we require a basic background in calculus, linear algebra, probability, computer programming, data structures, and algorithms. The Master of Science in Computer Science with Specialization in Data Science program at Contemporary Technology Universit is spread across 30 credits and contains projects involving big datasets, classification methods, variable selection, and deep learning to name a few.
