What is a Master in Big Data? Every day, mass quantities of data are generated all over the world, and it is the responsibility of skilled analysts to parse through this data, locating valuable information and disregarding meaningless junk. A degree program in big data helps you master the skills needed to become an analyst and teaches you the foundations of data analysis. Some of the core courses of the program include mathematics, data design, project management, and predictive analytics. During your studies, you also learn how to navigate and understand a variety of data-mining technologies.
Numerous industries, from government to retail, use data analytics to make better business decisions. The master’s degree program teaches you how to operate in each one of these industries. Such a capability helps you stand out from your competition when applying for a position.
Depending on the school and country, a master’s degree takes approximately one to two years to acquire. Tuition and fees also vary, but you can contact your college to determine the exact cost of enrollment.
Data analytics are of crucial importance to a range of industries. Once you have your degree, you are qualified to work in communications, finance, healthcare, manufacturing, government, and an assortment of other fields.

Master's Programme in Human-Computer Interaction
In addition to the continued development of increasingly powerful and portable personal computers, a range of new artefacts is appearing, including car navigation devices and electronic books, adding to a large number of traditional artefacts, such as cameras, phones, washing machines, and fitness equipment, all of which are IT-artefacts which include advanced information processing components.
The trend towards the widespread use of IT-artefacts is one of the key aspects of the so-called "digital transformation", a revolutionary transformation of our culture and society that places a heavy emphasis on information and knowledge. This trend gives rise to new phenomena of human interaction with technology and world. Computational capabilities of the interactive things we use every day, combined with powerful new communication, input, and output capabilities, provide great possibilities for human action but also create numerous problems. Realising this potential effectively and efficiently requires that the interaction between people and IT-artefacts becomes an object of study dealing with both people and technology.... [-]
