Join the most strategic field of the digital economy and learn its fundamental methods and algorithms with the "Data Science" Master’s program at the UCA!
Data Science is an emergent field of activity, which will become increasingly vital to the digital economy in the coming years. This requirement is mainly due to our increasing capacities in data acquisition and processing. The UCA "Data Science" Master of Science prepares future specialists in mathematical techniques and computer tools necessary for the extraction of knowledge from masses of data.
The "Data Sciences" Master is a 2-year M.Sc. at the Université Côte d’Azur. It provides training in data science methods, emphasizing mathematical and computer science perspectives. Students will receive a thorough grounding in theory, as well as learning the technical and practical skills of data science enabling them to apply advanced methods of data science to investigate real-world questions. The core courses will provide students with comprehensive understanding of some of the most fundamental aspects of data, computational techniques, and statistical analysis. Students will then choose courses from a range of optional modules ranging from Distributed Computing to Big Data and Statistical Computing, to Financial Statistics, Management, and Marketing. The program will combine traditional lectures with computer lab sessions, in which students will work with data to complete hands-on exercises using programming tools, and analyze real data provided by professionals who are working in the industry. The "Data Science" Master also leads to Ph.D. programs in the area of applied mathematics and computer sciences.
Graduates will be competitive for positions both in private companies and public research institutes. They will be prepared to succeed in positions such as data scientists, data miners, or research assistants. Further research at the Ph.D.-level will prepare graduates for careers as research engineers or research. We also expect that our partners will offer several positions to our most competitive graduates.
