Admissions Requirements Applicants must provide the following:
The Master of Computational Data Science (MCDS) degree concentrates on the application of the scientific method to very large data systems. The degree focuses on scientific experimental design, data collection, data modeling and analysis, problem solving, and human-computer interaction. These problem areas are addressed through a core Computer Science curriculum consisting of software engineering, machine learning, statistics, and large scale distributed systems, storage systems, etc. The degree trains technologists to create new large scale data science systems.
Students interested in applying to the Fifth Year Master’s Program should do so by the middle of the fall semester of their senior year. Students are admitted based on strong evidence of research potential through close interaction with one or more faculty members — whether in projects, summer jobs or advanced classes. In addition to faculty support, we will also consider input from external people familiar with your background and research experience (., a supervisor for a summer internship).
