Master’s Programme

Programme Introduction

The master degree in Data Science comes up as an answer to the increasing need, felt by the region companies, of expertsin Data Science with skills on the most recent technologies and analytic techniques for acquiring, processing andanalysing large volumes of data. It is intended that the study program is multidisciplinary and that it potentiates a set ofsynergies between information systems, computation science and statistic, covering applications in several areas ofknowledge as, for example, Management, Engineering, Health, Business Sciences, among others.

The study cycle aims at achieving the following general objectives:
1) To broaden the 2nd cycle educational offer in the region;
2) To form qualified professionals in the Data Science area;
3) To develop Data Science skills in professionals already integrated in the market;
4) To develop connections with the region companies through internships, projects and dissertations that allow knowledge extraction and the creation of added value in the companies;
5) To develop applied research in the Data Science area, namely through the development of projects and dissertations;
6) To promote knowledge transfer to the organizations in the Data Science area;
7) To promote autonomous lifelong learning.

In this context, this study program allows an undergraduate to acquire advanced skills in the Data Science area. The teaching methodology focus on the resolution of problems, with the development of several projects aiming at the resolution of everyday real problems of companies, industries and services.
