Data Science has deep roots in computer science, optimization, probability, and statistical inference, and thus it is critical that any Data Science program enjoys a close collaboration between the Department of Statistics and the Department of Computer Science. Rutgers's MSDS program does just that!
The Masters in Data Science Program (MSDS) offers a 30-credit Master’s degree which will provide its graduates with:
- A deep understanding of the algorithmic tools and computational infrastructure necessary to manage, explore, and make sense of uncertain and complex data
- Computational skills to apply inference principles and prediction techniques to extract actionable value from data repositories
- Strong technical skills for data analytics, visualization, and summarization
- The necessary communication and leadership skills for successful careers as data science professionals
