Master in Data Science

Universidad Católica de Murcia, (UCAM)

We know the amount of data produced globally on a daily basis is 2.5 quintillion bytes which is enormous and is expected to only keep on increasing as the world’s population gets more access to internet. The data is now considered as a commodity that is more valuable than oil and buried in these data are answers to countless questions. Data science helps to deal with these vast volumes of data using modern tools and techniques to find unseen patterns, derive meaningful information, and make business decisions. When the opportunity in data science comes knocking at your door, will you be ready?

Program Overview

Masters in Data Science program aims to teach students everything they will need to know to be a data scientist. The curriculum is made up of 2 core subjects – Computer Science & Statistics, students will learn how to work with data using python, statistics & algorithms to solve complex problems. Students can choose two elective subjects depending on their previous academic background and interests.
