Data today is one of the most important elements of any business. The way it is spreading all across the world, it is nothing less than wildfire. However, handling and analyzing massive amounts of data is not a cakewalk and requires novel approaches and techniques. And that is why the need for experts to manage and understand data and extract meaningful insight, is increasing significantly. This is where the data scientist comes into the scenario.

To deal with talent crunch when it comes to data science, almost every nation has begun taking necessary steps to train individuals interested in making a career in data science. In this article, we are compiling a  list of 10 data science programs from a few countries in the EU.



1. Data Engineering and Analytics (MSc) And Master’s Mathematics in Data Science @ Technische Universität Munchen — Germany

Both the programs are parallel and share a common core of foundations and focus on the informatics and mathematical aspects of Big Data.

“Data Engineering and Analytics” focuses the fundamental methods and practical techniques for the processing of very large data sets. While, “Mathematics in Data Science” focuses on computation, simulation and prediction of complex phenomena and complicated interpretation of data, which requires complex mathematical models.

Fee: €129,40

Duration: 4 semesters

Prerequisites

  • a bachelor’s degree in Informatics or Mathematics with a minor Informatics (or similar)
  • elementary skills in Informatics, especially foundations of Informatics and programming of algorithms and databases. 
  • proficiency in English is required
