About

 The digital transformation of society has led to explosive growth in the volume of data available. Most of the players in society now place great importance on using this data to help make objective decisions and develop their disciplinary focus. The Master in Data Science Engineering is offered at Université Catholique de Louvain (UCL).

Overview

The engineering master's in data science offers a course in scientific methods and technology tools for answering social or scientific questions based on the processing of frequently massive data sets ("big data"). This discipline usually requires a structured model of the problem in question to be combined with statistics and mathematics to deliver a rigorous, quantitative, operational solution to the question posed. Computer infrastructure and complex calculation algorithms thus complement scientific methods in structuring and processing the data. The Master in Data Science Engineering is offered at Université Catholique de Louvain (UCL).

The fields of application of data science are extremely varied: political and security decision-making, real-time online advertising, e-commerce, processing network data, processing financial and industrial production data, biomedical research based on omics or imaging data.

Your future job

Your degree in data science prepares you for the posts of data scientist, data analyst, data and analytics manager or data engineer and equips you to take on responsibilities in these areas.

Your programme

The data science programme draws on four common foundations:
