The first year of the program develops a solid foundation in computer science and statistics - core skills necessary for every data scientist in their professional work.
Students with an undergraduate background in either of these areas may gain some advanced standing, whereas students from other disciplines will first complete the introductory courses needed to prepare them for studying the advanced core courses and electives in the second year.
The second year also includes a major project, which can be working on an industry or research project while based on campus, or off campus as an internship working as a data scientist in industry.
The real-world focus of this program provides an excellent networking environment that can lead to internship and industry-led project opportunities.
Building a familiarity with statistical techniques and tools, you’ll develop the technical and analytical skills essential to managing large data sets and making sense of them.
Faced with complex collections of data you’ll be able to solve problems through in-depth analysis and evaluation.
Data scientists are often dealing with highly sensitive personal data, so it is imperative that before working on industry projects (for example, as an intern) students undertake case studies with input from industry-based data scientists, looking at the legal, ethical and policy issues in data science.
