The programme is offered jointly by the Department of Business and Public Administration, the Department of Computer Science, and the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. It is expected to start in September 2021 and will be offered in English. Data science is an inter-disciplinary field that uses scientific methods, processes, algorithms and systems to extract knowledge and insights from Big Data. Data Science is quickly becoming a field of central importance to the strategy of modern organizations. There is an increasing need for highly trained employees who can think across disciplines to transform data into actionable insights. The objective of the program is to provide students with a strong understanding of basic and advanced methods in statistical inference, machine learning, data visualization, and data mining, which are the essential skills a modern data scientist needs to posses.
The completion of the programme requires 90 ECTS and the duration is 1,5-year. The programme offers 3 tracks (Computer Science Track / Statistics Track / Business Analytics Track). The first two semesters will be dedicated to core courses, while students will select a track at the end of the second semester.
