Data Science: Computer Science (MSc)
The Data Science master's specialisation equips you with state-of-the-art knowledge in the advanced statistical techniques, machine learning and algorithmic aspects of data analysis.
What does this master’s programme entail?
Data science is an interdisciplinary discipline at the border between statistical science and computer science aiming at discovering knowledge from typically large set of data. To achieve this goal, data scientists use statistical methods and machine learning in combination with exploration and optimization algorithms from computer science. This specialisation provides you thorough knowledge and understanding of statistical and computational aspects of data analysis, including their application in databases, advances in data mining, networks, pattern recognition, and deep learning.
