Student honors

Highly qualified students who have enrolled to the second year of the M.Sc. in Data Science are eligible for the student honors program. Annual call is usually issued in December.
For the present academic year 2019/2020 the official call for application is now available. If you are eligible you must apply by January 13th. There are 8 positions available. The new set of rules and requirements has been updated and is available below. 
The submission deadline and the publication date of the results are specified in the call. Upon competitive criteria as detailed in the call (number of credits earned during the first academic year, weighted average grade), a limited number of students are selected and admitted to the Data Science student honors program. Selected students will be assigned to a tutor who will plan scientific and educational activities in addition to those being part of the regular course of study. These activities, for a maximum of 100 hours per year, may include participation to PhD seminars or to summer/winter schools, extra project work in the framework of a national or European research project or an internship with an industrial partner. In any case the activities must be assigned and approved by the tutor. More details on the planned activities available can be found at the following Moodle site 

In order to successfully complete the honors program, students must conclude the additional planned scientific and educational activities in time and, by the end of their second year, the must earn all the credits prescribed for the regular course of study with a weighted average grade on exams larger or equal than twenty-seven (out of thirty). For those who enrolled as first-year students in a.y. 2017/2018 this means that they must be graduating by the end of January 2020.
