Analyzing the rising tide of data has become important to a wide range of fields, including the humanities, medicine, and business, as well as engineering and the sciences.
The Master of Computer Science in Data Science (MCS-DS) program from the University of Illinois gives you access to the computational and statistical knowledge you need to turn big data into meaningful insights.
The MCS-DS is made up of 8 courses and builds expertise in four core areas of computer science: data visualization, machine learning, data mining and cloud computing. The program is 100% online, so you can learn anywhere and anytime but still get the same exact degree that you’d receive on campus. With the ability to complete the courses at your own pace (12-36 months) – the program is perfect for professionals, working parents, or those who are balancing other commitments while pursuing higher education. Because the MCS-DS is grounded in computing fundamentals, students will learn the deep skills needed to work with today’s massive datasets.
