Be part of the inaugural Master of Data Science cohort in Fall 2021!
The much anticipated UCI Master of Data Science (MDS) program will be a 15 month in-residence program offering graduate-level training in the emerging discipline of Data Science to high-performing graduates and working professionals. This program is intended to prepare students for careers as Data Scientists in high-tech industries, business, and government. The course of study will consist of a balanced mix of courses in Statistics and Computer Science, a professional writing and communication course, and a capstone project course. Most courses will also include a formal lab component, which will include hands-on use of relevant data-related software and technologies.
- The program will span four academic quarters (fall, winter, spring and fall) in addition to a summer component that includes either an internship or additional coursework.
- A key feature of the program is the capstone design courses, which are taken simultaneously and include design, development and professional writing components.
The MDS program is awaiting final approval from the University of California, Office of the President (UCOP) before officially opening up the application process.
