The programme features a multi-disciplinary curriculum that draws on insights across a range of disciplines and prepare students to be able to extract information from real-world data sets using the latest tools and analytical methods as well as to interpret and communicate their findings in ways that change people’s minds and behaviour.
The Master of Science in Data Science is a two-years programme, with a collaborative project with different academic units. Students will have a total of 4 fundamental courses taught by the Faculty of Science and Technology on big data theory, excavation and analysis techniques etc. Students are required to declare their specialization which offered by different academic units to learn and study how big data can be practically and effectively applied in their designated fields of specialization. Students should enroll courses according to the study plan of their designated specialization and finish a project report with assigned topic.
To better meet the new challenges and the strategic planning mentioned in the Policy Address of Macau, the Master of Science in Data Science is under revision, e.g., adding more specification and revising the specialization curriculum. The full detail will be released in 2021 Spring after all administrative work. Our mission is to make the programme meet future needs and produce positive outcomes to our society.
