Availability of unprecedented amounts of data and emerging scalable technologies are changing the way we make decisions. Data Science is the study of collecting, maintaining, processing and communicating intelligent insights about complex data. The professional Master of Science in Data Science program is a multi-disciplinary program designed to create tomorrow’s leading data scientists.

MS in Data Science is a one-year program which is a fusion of statistical and computing technologies including data mining, machine learning, cloud computing, and data visualization. Students will have the option to work with faculty on a research project, work on an internship with one of our co-op partners or complete a capstone data science project from start to finish. 

The program also features a Special Topics course to address the ever changing current issues and techniques in Data Science. Potential Special Topics courses include data science applications in Advanced Mobility, Cybersecurity and Deep Learning
