The Master of Science (MSc)
Program in Data-Driven Modeling

About the Program

The Master of Science (MSc) Program in Data-Driven Modeling is jointly offered by the Department of Physics and the Department of Mathematics. The program aims at training students with some science or engineering background who would like to prepare themselves for careers that require modeling skills based on information extracted from data.

Data-driven modeling is an essential skill in many sectors involving information technology, such as computer services, commerce, finance, and public services. Due to the phenomenal growth in the speed and memory size of computer hardware, the omnipresence of Internet, and the accessibility of powerful computational algorithms, there is a strong demand for human power in hardware, software, services, infrastructure, information, and digital business.

This program aims at training graduates to have strong skills in problem solving and logical thinking. These skills are essential for them to become competent in the information technology sector. They will be trained to have hands-on experience in analyzing large amount of data, extract significant features from them, and hence provide valuable insights to understand complex situations and facilitate smart decision making for businesses, industries and services.
