The MSc in Data Science from University of Cyprus is designed for students that have a background in STEM or in Business and Economics, who can demonstrate good knowledge of English, and who, as part of their undergraduate degree, have completed an introductory statistics course, as well as a course in a programming language such as Python and/or R (see Admissions for further information).
What you'll study
The programme offers 3 tracks (Computer Science Track / Statistics Track / Business Analytics Track).
The first two semesters will be dedicated to core courses; students will select a track at the end of the second semester. Part of the programme is the Capstone project in Data Science, where students tackle specific and practical problems of an interdisciplinary nature.
In this course students engage in all aspects of the lifecycle of data-science projects – from process modelling, data extraction, cleaning and validation, to data interpretation and visualization. The capstone project will begin in the summer term, after the end of the second semester.
