Data is the driving force behind today's information-based society. There is a rapidly increasing demand for specialists who are able to exploit the new wealth of information in large and complex systems.
The programme focuses on modern methods from machine learning and database management that use the power of statistics to build efficient models, make reliable predictions and optimal decisions. The programme provides students with unique skills that are among the most valued on the labour market.
The rapid development of information technologies has led to the overwhelming of society with enormous volumes of information generated by large or complex systems. Applications in IT, telecommunications, business, robotics, economics, medicine, and many other fields generate information volumes that challenge professional analysts. Models and algorithms from machine learning, data mining, statistical visualisation, computational statistics and other computer-intensive statistical methods included in the programme are designed to learn from these complex information volumes. These tools are often used to increase the efficiency and productivity of large and complex systems and also to make them smarter and more autonomous. This naturally makes these tools increasingly popular with both governmental agencies and the private sector.
The programme is designed for students who have basic knowledge of mathematics, applied mathematics, statistics and computer science and have a bachelor's degree in one of these areas, or an engineering degree.
Most of the courses included in the programme provide students with deep theoretical knowledge and practical experience from massive amounts of laboratory work.
Students will be given the opportunity to learn:
The programme contains a wide variety of courses that students may choose from. Students willing to complement their studies with courses given at other universities have the possibility to participate in exchange studies during the third term. Our partner programmes were carefully selected in order to cover various methodological perspectives and applied areas.
During the final term of the programme, students receive help in finding a private company or a government institution where they can work towards their thesis. There they can apply their knowledge to a real problem and meet people who use advanced data analytics in practice.
Demand is increasing rapidly for specialists able to analyse large and complex systems and databases with the help of modern computer-intensive methods. Business, telecommunications, IT and medicine are just a few examples of areas where our students are in high demand and find advanced analytical positions after graduation.
Students aiming at a scientific career will find the programme the ideal background for future research. Many of the programme''s lecturers are internationally recognised researchers in the fields of statistics, data mining, machine learning, database methodology and computational statistics.
