The M.S. in Data Science program provides a strong foundation in the science of Big Data and its analysis by gathering in a single program the knowledge, expertise, and educational assets in data collection and management, data analytics, scalable data-driven pattern discovery, and the fundamental concepts behind these methods.

Students who graduate from this regular 2 year master's program will learn the state-of-the-art methods for treating Big Data, be exposed to the cutting edge methods and theory forming the basis for the next generation of Big Data technology, and will complete a project demonstrating that they can use the fundamental concepts to design innovative methods for new application areas arising from business, government, security, medicine, biology, physical sciences, and the environment.
