The interdisciplinary structured Master's degree in data science combines content from computer science, mathematics, information systems, and the natural sciences. Core courses provide you with an overarching understanding of machine learning and deep learning, statistical data analysis, data assimilation, business analytics, and big data infrastructures. More specialised courses help you engage with the current state of research in the chosen areas of focus.
In seminars, you will work through complex topics, and in the module of applied data science, you will apply the competences you have acquired in a practical manner. In the research module, you will be connected to a research project at the University of Potsdam or one of Potsdam's many research institutions. An internship in industry is also an option. Berlin/Potsdam's lively start-up scene and many big data companies offer ample opportunities for internships.
In the four-semester Master's programme, you will earn a total of 120 credit points, consisting of the modules and your Master's thesis. For additional information, please consult the subject-specific degree regulations or the Departmental Advisory Office.
