Student Academic Profiles

The MS DS program is recruiting students with strong undergraduate backgrounds in one of the core areas of statistics, computational mathematics, computer science, and information science, or closely related technical fields, and gives them advanced interdisciplinary training across the disciplines of statistics, mathematics, computer and computational sciences, at levels appropriate for MS students in these respective disciplines. The program is spread over two academic years of instruction; as such, any dedicated two-year MS degree in any one of these disciplines would delve into further depth in that direction than the two-year MS DS degree.

Typical students come in with adequate programming competencies. These can include practical experience with languages from the mathematical sciences, such as MATLAB or R, or classical object-oriented programming.
