About

Based on a multidisciplinary approach, the Master of Data Science at the University of Luxembourg provides students with the necessary skills to solve complex problems with data in different contexts. 

Overview

Strengths

  • High-level training: courses are conducted by high-level research teams from Luxembourg and abroad
  • Multidisciplinary approach: joint contribution of the university's main research centres, including the departments of Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics and Materials Science, Life Sciences and Medicine as well as LCSB and SnT
  • Broad spectrum of skills: the programme covers data mining, data cleaning and processing, data visualization, statistical modeling, database management, workflow organization. It also addresses machine learning and deep learning techniques and their applications to life sciences, medicine and physics
  • Variety of pedagogical tools: mix of theoretical and practical courses, projects and workshops involving professionals from the industrial sector
  • International and multicultural environment: the University of Luxembourg offers the opportunity to meet students from all over the world.
  • Central place in Europe: offering free transport throughout the country and developed rail and air networks, Luxembourg provides easy access to the capital and the major European cities

Objectives

The objective of the Data Science programme at the University of Luxembourg is to provide initial training that will meet the growing demand for data science experts, providing students with the technical skills needed to solve complex problems using data. Graduates will be prepared for a variety of professional functions requiring data analysis skills in the health, economic, social network or financial sectors.

The training is based on a multidisciplinary approach that includes mathematics and computer science. Mathematics provides the fundamental tools and theoretical bases needed to design and analyse procedures, while computer science enables these procedures to be translated into algorithms and to manage the organisation of calculations and the manipulation of large databases.

The applications relate to problems arising from physics, life sciences and the industrial world. They will illustrate how statistics, machine learning, deep learning and data visualisation methods are used by researchers and industrialists in their scientific analyses and decision-making.
