MASTER DATA SCIENCE

Responsible

The "Big Data" phenomenon is rooted in the field of data science and engineering, which aims at developing both computer and mathematical tools for data storage,processing and analytics. An increasing volume of data is daily produced by modern day industrial processes (in fields such as energy, intelligent transport systems, health, tourism and many others...), and fuelled by the rise of multimedia content being shared and the Internet of Things in our daily life. Artificial Intelligence is now empowering applications which requires large scale and smart processing of data to build accurate predictive models. Key Words: Big Data, Data Science, Machine Learning, Data Mining, Deep Learning, Business Intelligence, Web Science, Artificial Intelligence

OBJECTIVES:

  •  Combine computer and statistical sciences to develop cutting-edge and fundamental tools to efficiently address data processing problems 
  • Learn how to develop methods, algorithms and software capable to extract knowledge and insights out of huge masses of heterogonous data with several dimensions.
  • Provide a cohesive blend of technical classes in machine learning, data mining, information extraction and distributed systems coupled with fundamentals in Business, Innovation and Project Management to develop profiles which are highly valued by corporate

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS

To be eligible, Candidates need

  • Bachelor's Degree (minimum 3 years of higher education) in a relevant field including undergraduate degrees in Statistics, Computer Science, Mathematics, Engineering and Physics;
  •  Strong foundations in Mathematics, Calculus (limits, derivatives, series, integrals, probability, statistics, etc.), Linear Algebra and Programming (e.g. R, Python, Java)
  • A certified B2 level in English. No requirement are needed in French as the program is fully taught in English.

Language Unit ECTS: 1.00

(French, or another language if the student is already fluent in French)

Semester Project Unit ECTS: 10.00

Supervised Semester Projects are based on real-case studies of industrial relevance. They combine a blend of theoretical and practical work (developing new prototypes and tools, testing new technologies, assessing current systems and solutions…). Students can work individually or in group of 2/3. The expected workload is 200 hours of individual work per semester. A defense is organized at the end. Projects provide students with hands-on skills by allowing them to put concepts into practice. (200h)

SEMESTER 10 - SPRING (30 ECTS) -  March – August

RESEARCH / INDUSTRIAL INTERNSHIP (Paid) Unit ECTS: 30.00

The internship is to be carried out in a company or lab in France or abroad. It allows students to get a hands-on experience and ease their entry into the job market. Students work on a research/development project under the supervision of a professor and an industrial mentor. Students are integrated as part of the staff and receive a monthly allowance, the amount of the allowance depends on the company and position. EURECOM helps students find an internship by providing an updated database of paid internship opportunities offered by companies.
