M.S. overview

The Master's of Science in Data Science program is a regular, two-year (31 credits) master's program integrates a strong foundation in big data and analysis.

Students will learn state-of-the-art methods for working with big data, be exposed to cutting-edge methods and theory for forming the basis for next generation big data technology, and will complete a project demonstrating their usage of fundamental concepts of data science.

Students take multiple courses in each of the three focus areas (statistics, algorithmics, and infrastructure and large scale computing) plus electives.

All students have the opportunity to conduct research under the direction of a faculty member, culminating with the capstone project and poster at the annual Data Science Poster Fair.
