Big data is one of the key terms to our contemporary world: the existence of nearly limitless amounts of data that need to be collected, managed, analysed and processed by competent professionals, equipped with specific tools. If you wish to train as a data scientist you will receive a multidisciplinary learning path which combines technical skills (with methodologies borrowed from engineering, computer science, statistics and mathematics) with knowledge of different sectors in which data processing is needed. You will therefore be able to processes the data and translate it into information useful for cognitive and decision-making process. You will be able to work in companies that provide IT services, startups and high-tech companies, public administrations and research centers. The course is delivered entirely in English.

  Deepening

Characteristics and objectives
