Similarities in Data Challenges across different fields 

The amount of data in the world has grown dramatically over the past few years and continues to do so. With this, there is a growing need to effectively and safely put this data to use. As opposed to fundamental research into data science, the field of Applied Data Science is unique in that it recognizes similarities in data challenges across different fields. In this Master’s programme, we’ll examine the optimal ways to utilise those data. In the process, we’ll look at how to turn old data into new data and use it to solve problems within a variety of domains. 

One-year fast-paces academic Master's programme

In this one-year fast-paced academic Master’s programme, you’ll learn how to apply data science techniques in four different focus domains. This knowledge will be combined with your own domain-specific knowledge to create considerable added value.
