Additional information

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) and the College of Computer and Information Science (CCIS) at Northeastern University have recently launched a new interdisciplinary Masters of Science program in Data Science. The program is designed to give students a comprehensive framework for processing, modeling, analyzing, and reasoning about data. Students engage in an extensive core intended to develop depth in computational modeling, data collection and integration, data storage and retrieval, data processing, modeling and analytics, and visualization. Program graduates will be well positioned to attain data scientist and data engineer positions in a fast growing field, or to progress into doctoral degrees in related disciplines.
