Data Science for Decision Making

Do you like coming up with elegant solutions for complex problems? Do you find it challenging to extract patterns from large sets of data? Then you should consider getting a master’s in Data Science for Decision Making. In today’s world, many companies and organisations collect all sorts of data. They aim to extract useful information from it, to recognise patterns and anomalies. Data Science for Decision Making provides the mathematical tools to model and handle these datasets. It has widespread applications in business and engineering, ranging from scheduling customer service agents and optimising supply chains, to modelling biological processes and extracting meaningful components from brain signals. Upon graduation, you'll therefore have excellent qualifications to pursue a career as a data scientist, researcher or manager in many different industries.

  • A very nice place in my faculty is the Swarmlab, where you get access to equipment you don’t usually have
