The specialization in Mathematics of Data Science comprises 2 years of study for a total of 120 EC.
In the first year you will gather 60 EC, spread out over courses in three categories:
The second year of the specialization in Data Science specialization consists of a compulsory internship (20 EC) and your Master's assignment (40 EC).
After your internship you will work on a Master’s assignment in the field of Data Science. The choice of your specific graduation subject will be largely up to you. For example, you may want to contribute to the formulation of theories around a specific theme concerning big data, or look for an algorithm or mathematical model that can help you answer your research question. Should the required algorithm or model not be readily available, you may want to consider developing it yourself.
