The Data Science and Analytics (DSA) master's and PhD programs are a natural extension of the popular Collaborative Specialization in Data Science that was launched in 2015 which is offered jointly by several departments. Data Science is a field which has grown in huge leaps. The Collaborative Specialization is focused on interdisciplinary Data Science. In contrast, our full master's and PhD programs are totally focused on the technical aspect of Data Science. The programs offer opportunities to undertake groundbreaking research in the field of data science and analytics from several directions such as statistics, AI methods and software engineering.

Data scientists and data analytics professionals focus on the collection, preprocessing, exploration, use and visualization of data, be it from sensors, transactional data, or other sources. Students will be exposed to the various methodologies that constitute these areas of DSA, and more.
