Master in Data Science and Engineering

EURECOM

Description

The "Big Data" phenomenon is rooted in the field of data science and engineering, which aims at developing both computer and mathematical tools for data storage and processing. An increasing volume of data is daily produced by modern-day industrial processes (in fields such as energy, intelligent transport systems, aviation industry and many others...), and fuelled by the rise of multimedia tools and the Internet of Things in our daily life.

Objectives

  • Combining computer and statistical sciences to develop cutting-edge and fundamental tools to efficiently address applied issues related to data processing.
  • Learn how to develop methods, algorithms, and software able to extract value out of huge masses of heterogonous data with several dimensions.
  • Provide a cohesive blend of technical classes in data mining, software engineering, distributed systems coupled with fundamentals of Business, Innovation and Project Management to develop profiles which are highly valued by corporate recruiters.

Admission Requirements

To be eligible, Candidates need

  • Bachelor's Degree (minimum 3 years of higher education) in a relevant field
  • Strong foundations in mathematics
  • A certified B2 level in English. No requirement is needed in French as the program is fully taught in English.

Course Description

Students need to validate a certain amount of credits per Teaching Unit each semester. The curriculum offers great flexibility by offering many elective courses. Please consult the Academic Schedule and the Frequently Asked Questions for more Information about the schedule organization.

Semester Project 6

Supervised Semester Projects are based on real-case studies of industrial relevance. They combine a blend of theoretical and practical work (developing new prototypes and tools, testing new technologies, assessing current systems and solutions…). Students can work individually or in a group of 2/3. The expected workload is 100 hours of individual work per semester. A defense is organized at the end of each semester. Projects provide students with hands-on skills by allowing them to put concepts into practice.
