Data Science Master

The four semester english Data Science Master with the degree Master of Science (M.Sc) will start October 2017/2018 at Beuth University of Technology (App. Sc.). The application pages are now open!

Motivation

"AI is the new electricity", Andrew NG, Stanford/Google

Research Institutes agree: Data Science, Machine Learning and intelligent machines/systems do have huge growth rates. This will result in enormous changes in the industry and societies. This change is attended by Beuth Hochschule as a part of the Einstein Center Digital Future Initiative in education, research and with industry cooperations.

In a unique effort, our three departments VI, II and I created a master degree course which offers modern and practical Data Science education. This is accompanied by the Data Science Lab of Beuth Hochschule with a huge amount of research projects, publications and industrial contacts which will enrich this master. Our data science education takes the enormous demand of Data Scientists into account which is visible in Berlin, Germany and worldwide.

Goal of the Master

The master will qualify students to analyse big data efficiently and to create systems/solutions for Machine Learning. Therefore they will be all set for future industrial demands. The focus areas of this Data Science Master are "Urban Technologies" and "Intelligent Machines" and is explicitly interdisciplinary constructed.

After the basic knowledge of Data Science (as Computer Science and Statistics) we will teach a wide range of Machine Learning methods. Furthermore the most important tools, practices - as data preparation and big data analytics - will be taught and implemented practically. Additionally, we do have the possibility to work on an innovative idea right from the beginning to the end to create a start-up or together with leading companies in Berlin.

Furthermore, questions of ethics, responsibility and data protection as well as economic knowledge and analysis are integrated in order to convey an important change of perspective. The thesis on the Master of Science will be embedded in current research projects and industrial cooperation.
