The Computer Science: Applied Data Science programme at Malmö University will provide you with understanding of the state-of-the-art methods and algorithms of data science through hands-on experience with the latest tools and systems in the industry. 


During the Computer Science: Applied Data Science programme at Malmö University you will get a comprehensive understanding of the fundamental aspects of data modelling, computational techniques and statistical analysis. You will apply these skills to real-world problems and build a portfolio of projects demonstrating solutions to current business and societal challenges. You will have the opportunity to conduct original and innovative research, working with industry partners and academia during the capstone project course and thesis work.

The programme is built around the international research environments at the Department of Computer Science and Media Technology. The teaching staff includes experts in artificial intelligence, data processing and analysis, software development for big data and cloud architectures, modern software methodologies, and data visualisation.

Graduates will enter the workplace with solid skills in managing, modelling, visualising and processing big data in order to provide insights to meet the growing needs of a digitised society. After graduating from this programme, you will have developed competencies that are applicable across various sectors and application domains of data science such as computer science, technology, logistics, financial services, internet of things, transport, business analytics, healthcare, gaming and digital marketing and advertising analytics.

In addition, the programme will prepare you for postgraduate education in computational-based science and technology — especially focussed on data science — but also research and development work in related areas.
