Data Science is the collective name for various kinds of methods that are used to analyse large quantities of complex data, also known as big data. Data science provides critical support to decision makers in many professions, allowing them to make decisions based on information specific to their particular circumstances.
Data science is based primarily on the areas of informatics such as programming, data mining, artificial intelligence, and visualization. It is used in many application areas, such as business intelligence, the detection of anomalies in patterns of behaviour, analysis of services in cloud computing, and in bioinformatics and genetics.
The focus of your studies
The programme focuses on three main areas: intelligent data analysis, programming and decision support. You will study courses in artificial intelligence, data mining, programming and visual data analysis, finishing your studies with performing a thesis project.
