Master of Science in Data Science

The College of Computer and Information Science (CCIS) and the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) jointly offer a new interdisciplinary Master of Science program in data science. This program is designed to give students a comprehensive framework for processing, modeling, analyzing, and reasoning about data. Students will engage in an extensive core intended to develop depth in computational modeling, data collection and integration, data storage and retrieval, data processing, modeling and analytics, and visualization. Students will also be given a variety of elective areas in CCIS, the College of Engineering (COE), and throughout the campus to explore key contextual areas or more complex technical applications. Successful program graduates will be well positioned to attain data scientist and data engineer positions in a fast-growing field or to progress into doctoral degrees in related disciplines.
