Program Description

Applied MSc in Data Science and AI

Data ScienceTech Institute

This 6-month of classes and 6-month internship Applied MSc programme, with its two entries in Autumn and Spring, is designed to open your career to these Big Data jobs all industries are looking for.

And in France, it definitely makes Data Science “the sexiest job of the XXIth century”! (Harvard Business Review, Oct. 2012)

Classes are given in English from the:

  • End of September to the beginning of April for the Autumn entry;
  • Beginning of March to mid-October for the Spring entry;

on a full-time basis (5 hours/day) along with “Engineering Projects” (see below) and followed by a 6-month work placement.

In this Applied MSc programme, you will:

  • Learn how to understand the analysis, design, implementation & monitoring of IT & Big Data architectures;
  • Get familiar with the machine and deep learning algorithms with an industrial approach to applied mathematics;
  • Learn how to deploy Big Data architectures and Machine Learning results into corporate systems and get familiar with data visualization;
  • Get the awareness of the legal consequences of data handling, with a pinch of ethical thinking regarding the consequences of mining (big) data.
  • Be trained to and take two Enterprise-Level Certifications examinations:
    • Amazon AWS *Cloud-Computing DSTI Chair*
      Preparation for AWS Certified Solutions Architect – Associate
    • SAS Institute *The SAS ecosystem DSTI Chair*
      Preparation for SAS Certified Predictive Modeler Using SAS Enterprise Miner 14

Classes for this Applied MSc programme are offered on a full-time basis from Data ScienceTech Institute campuses (around 5hrs a day).

Once the classes are finished, our Applied MSc students can choose between going for a work placement or working on an advanced engineering project and dissertation. DSTI strongly encourages On-Campus students towards industrial placement and advanced engineering projects for online education students ones.

WORK PLACEMENT

6 months

On-Campus students are strongly encouraged to choose the 6-month work placement option (805hrs, 35hrs/week) and immerse themselves into a data science industrial environment. Finding a work placement opportunity is a student’s responsibility. DSTI provides active help, advice, and support throughout its industrial and academic partners network.

ADVANCED ENGINEERING PROJECT

540hrs*

Online education students will be tutored by a DSTI Professor in selecting a data science engineering problem for a given industrial application and write an engineering proposal, covering state-of-the-art literature, to propose a solution. On-Campus students may also choose this engineering project as an alternative to a work placement.

* 540hrs is an evaluated time, which accounts for the 200hrs already spent during the classes time and equivalent to four months of legal full-time work in France (35hrs per week), of requirement commitment to perform the project.
