The Master of Science with a major in Applied Data Science degree will provide students with a working knowledge of techniques and software commonly used in Data Science. The degree is designed for engineering students and working professional engineers with a B.S. degree in a non-computing engineering field, that is, for engineering students and professional engineers who have engineering degrees other than Computer Science or Computer Engineering and possibly Industrial and Systems Engineering. The degree will prepare engineering students to work as data scientists in industry and can also be used by engineering students working towards a Ph.D. degree in non-computing focused engineering degree programs.
