The Master of Science in Data Science aims to fill a gap that has been growing increasingly in the Portuguese business industries (eg., finance, public policy, insurance, fisheries and agriculture, energy, telecommunications, tourism, health). with the challenges inherent in extracting knowledge and value from the huge wealth of data that exists, both in business and on the Internet. Thus, the Master provides advanced training that allows complementing a basic education in areas where Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science have been a fundamental pillar, in order to leverage analytical, descriptive and predictive skills in the Master's students to enable advanced and innovative research or application.
