MS (Data Science)

MS Data Science Program

The MS (Data Science) is a 2-year program offered in the evening classes. It requires 30 credit hours including 3 core courses (3×3=9) and 2 specialized data science courses (2×3=6). A 6-credit hour thesis is mandatory.

The maximum time limit to complete the MS (Data Science) degree is 4 years.

Why Study Data Science?

The amount of data is growing so rapidly as well as its significance in the emerging societal setups such as the pervasive Internet of Things. The way one imagines data is going to change in the coming years. Both Big Data Analytics and pervasive computing hinge on the principle axis of data analytics. MS (Data Science) program is going to be relevant in terms of job creation and artisanal smart business generation. Graduates from this program would definitely avail the early-bird advantage.


Program Objectives

The MS (Data Science) program has been designed to give students the option to be part of a data science endeavor that begins with the identification of business processes, determination of data provenance and ownership, understanding the ecosystem of the business decisions, skill sets and tools that shape the data, making data amenable to analytics, identifying sub-problems, recognizing the technology matrix required for problem resolution, creating incrementally-complex data-driven models and then maintaining them to ultimately leverage them for business growth.

Individual objectives include:

  • To equip students to transform data into actionable insights to make complex decisions
  • To enable students to understand and analyze problems and arrive at computable solutions
  • To expose students to the set of technologies that match those solutions.
  • To gain hands-on experience on data-centric tools for statistical analysis, visualization and big data applications at the same rigorous scale as in a practical data science project.
  • To understand the implications of handling data in terms of data security and business ethics
  • 16 years of education in a related field with minimum 50%/ marks or CGPA 2.00.
  • GAT General/ HAT relevant with min. 50% score

The candidates shall have to submit GRE (General)/GAT (General)/HAT relevant score of minimum 50%. The maximum time limit to complete the MS degree is four years.
