Master of Science [M.Sc] (Data Science: Computer Science)
What does this master?s programme entail?
Data science is an interdisciplinary discipline at the border between statistical science and computer science aiming at discovering knowledge from typically large set of data. To achieve this goal, data scientists use statistical methods and machine learning in combination with exploration and optimization algorithms from computer science. This specialisation provides you thorough knowledge and understanding of statistical and computational aspects of data analysis, including their application in databases, advances in data mining, networks, pattern recognition, and deep learning.Why study Data Science: Computer Science at Leiden University?
- The specialisation is a unique collaboration between?Leiden Institute of Advanced Computer Science?and the?Mathematical Institute, in collaboration with the?Leiden Centre of Data Science.
- Within the Data Science master's specialisation you?focus on the statistical and computational aspects of Data Science as well as on its applications.
If you are interested in the statistical and computational aspects of data science and its application, the master?s specialisation in data science is the right choice. More over this specialisation is interesting for you if you would like to work at the border between statistical science and computer science.
