Program Description

Master in Data Science (DSC)

EIT Digital Master School

Why study Data Science?

Data abounds: social media, manufacturing systems, medical devices, logistic services, and countless others generate petabytes of data on a daily basis. With a wealth of data available, we are at a point in history, where we can conduct analyses to detect, discover, and, ultimately, better understand the world around us.

What are the career opportunities for Data Science graduates?

Become a professional for a career in a highly innovative area: data science. The profession in Data Science is hailed as the “… Sexiest Job of the 21st Century,” by Harvard Business Review in October 2012. The Data Scientist is a professional who simultaneously possesses breadth and depth in scalable data management, data analysis, and domain area expertise, and who is capable of solving real-world problems. This is an opportune time to pursue training in both a challenging and rewarding new field. Join us and embark on a journey of a lifetime!

What is Data Science Master at EIT Digital all about?

The newly established Data Science Master’s offers a unique academic programme, whereby students can study data science, innovation, and entrepreneurship at leading European universities. In this programme, students will learn about scalable data collection techniques, data analysis methods, and a suite of tools and technologies that address data capture, processing, storage, transfer, analysis, and visualization, and related concepts (e.g., data access, pricing data, and data privacy).

How is the programme structured?

The first year will be similar at all three DSc entry point universities: Universidad Politecnica de Madrid (UPM), Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), and Universite Nice Sophia Antipolis (UNS) with foundations courses, such as data handling, data analysis, advanced data analysis and data management, visualization, and applications. The second year will enable students to concentrate one of six technical specialisation areas of their own choosing. See specialisations below.

An important part of the programme is the Innovation and Entrepreneurship (I&E) courses. The I&E basics course provides an introduction to business & management. Students participating in the DSc track are offered an internship with an industry partner or research centre of the EIT Digital to work on their thesis project. Directly linked to the master thesis is the I&E minor thesis that specifies the requirements, strategy and business plan for the selected thesis project.
