Program Description

Our master's program is a unique combination of solid mathematical background and computer science applications. Not only will you learn how to use tools, such as deep neural networks, but you will gain a profound understanding of why they work.

Our staff is specialists from different subfields of data science: statistics, machine learning, optimization, analysis of big data, processing of natural language. We have both solid academic experience but we also advise companies on how data science can be used to increase their profits. We offer small groups (15 people enrolled yearly) and an individual approach to each student.

Only three courses (Machine Learning, Numerical Optimization, Statistical Learning) are obligatory. They will give you the necessary foundations for pursuing knowledge in more advanced courses. As a student of our department, you could also broaden your horizons by taking supplementary courses, e.g., algorithms or optimization. Don’t worry: we’ll advise you what courses to study next!

Our graduates find jobs in top companies in Silicon Valley (Google, Microsoft & Facebook), work at top universities (MIT), and found prospective startups.

Our students participate in data science projects from the very beginning of their studies. You will gain invaluable hands-on experience already before graduating.
