Master's Degree in Data Science

The remarkable increase in the volume and complexity of available data and new technologies that have been developed to process them requires a combined multi-disciplinary approach to design an overall strategy aimed at transforming data into useful information. Key ingredients to develop a successful strategy are data manipulation and visualization, large scale computing, statistical modelling, learning techniques, algorithmic thinking.
Laurea Magistrale in Data Science is a new Master's degree taught in English. It is a joint initiative within the i3S Faculty combining the expertise of four Departments
  • Department of Computer Science (DI)
  • Department of Computer, Control and Management Engineering (DIAG)
  • Information Engineering, Electronics and Telecommunications (DIET)
  • Statistics (DSS)

This Master's program provides a solid and modern preparation to understand and manage the multi-facet aspects of carrying out a complete data analysis, including acquisition, management, and statistical analysis.
