Summary

Data science combines computer science and statistics to solve exciting data-intensive problems in industry and many fields of science. As data is collected and analysed in all areas of society, the demand for professional data scientists is high and will grow even further.

In the interdisciplinary Master's Programme in Data Science, you are trained to work in data-intensive areas of industry and science, with the skills and knowledge needed to construct solutions to complex data analysis problems.

You can specialise either in the core areas of data science – machine learning and algorithms, infrastructure and statistics – or in its applications. This means that you can focus on the development of new models and methods in data science, supported by the data science research carried out at the University of Helsinki; or you can become a data science specialist in an application field by incorporating studies in another subject.
