Data Science is the fastest growth area in Computer Science

We plan to start offering a Data Science track as an option in our Computer Professionals Master's Program with the October 2017 entry. This track will include the following core courses:

  • Big Data
  • Big Data Technologies
  • Big Data Analytics
  • Machine Learning
  • Some of these courses are available to current students.

Supporting courses that everyone in this track should take (or waive) include:

  • Algorithms
  • Web Application Programming
  • and
  • Database Management Systems

Additional requirements for entering this track

In addition to regular program requirements, because Data Science has a strong analytic math/statistics emphasis, students interested in this track should indicate their interest as part of their application.

To be accepted to the Data Science track, students should ideally have a GRE quantitative score in the 70th percentile (158) or above. Students without a GRE will be considered if their grades and math background are sufficiently strong.

Applicants must also have sufficient mathematics courses on their transcript, including at a minimum, calculus and probability, and ideally also linear algebra and statistics.
