The Master of Science in Data Science (MSDS) is an 11-month professional masters program. The program starts in mid-July and ends the following year in mid-May. Core program courses are taught by faculty from the departments of Computer Science, Statistics, and Systems and Information Engineering. The program utilizes the spiral learning framework, first giving the students the base that they need in languages, computation, and linear modeling and building upon those skills to move to the practice and application of data science. The program culminates in a capstone project where the students use their knowledge base to solve a real world data science problem and present the results in a public presentation.
