Short description

Data abounds. Social media, manufacturing systems, medical devices, logistic services, and countless others generate petabytes of data on a daily basis. With a wealth of data available, we are at a point in history, where we can conduct analyses to detect, discover, and, ultimately, better understand the world around us.

The Data Science Masters offers a unique two-year academic programme, whereby students study data science, innovation and entrepreneurship at two different leading European universities.

Students acquire in-depth technical skills in scalable data collection techniques and data analysis methods. They learn how to use and develop a suite of tools and technologies that address data capture, processing, storage, transfer, analysis, visualisation, and related concepts (e.g., data access, data pricing, and data privacy).

Strength of program

The EIT Digital Master School is a flagship education on advanced level provided by leading European universities and IT companies. It offers a two-year education in which you can choose two universities in two different European countries with a double degree at the end. This means that two leading universities’ technical competence and skills are together in this program, join forces to offer a competitive education.

Next to the strong technical background, provides Innovation and Entrepreneurship education in 25% of the program, which means that students gain knowledge about how industry works and how research results can be turned into service or product, even before they graduate. The program also includes a 4-month internship to be done at one of the EIT Digital partner companies, where students can experience world changing innovations from first hand.

As a key factor for success, EIT Digital also provides great networking opportunities with its kick-off, summer school and graduation events to those, who are interested in establishing their own business.
