|Description:||Data science is the next frontier of information technology but few universities offer programming in this area. Carleton’s new collaborative master’s in Data Science is geared at graduate students and high-tech professionals who are interested in understanding how to analyze and use ‘big data’ sets collected by governments, industry, NGOs etc. for purposes such as generating personal recommendations for online shopping, improving the efficiency of health care delivery or predicting national security threats.
Students will earn their degree in one of the academic disciplines listed below with a specialization in data science (or an MBA concentration in Business Analytics) through research or coursework that addresses a data science challenge. Working with its partners, Carleton University will become a national hub for data science research and training, educating a highly skilled workforce for local, national and international communities, and creating the next generation of IT leaders. Carleton’s location in Ottawa and long relationship with the city’s technology sector is positioned well to create a highly educated workforce of data science specialists.
