We are living in the age of a new wave of digital revolutions, led by cloud and internet technologies, resulting in an unprecedented amount of data produced every day. The ability to make sense of this data, foresee the applications of insights produced by it, and communicate effectively these insights to a diverse range of audiences is of paramount importance to engineers and other professionals.

The MSc in Data Science program at Koç University has a computational focus and students are trained in advanced methods, tools, and applications to help them achieve the above goals.

The program provides students wishing to succeed in today’s data-driven world:

  • Theoretical foundations and practical skills to apply the knowledge gained in a wide range of applications and industries
  • An interdisciplinary curriculum with the collaboration of various departments from our College of Engineering and our Graduate School of Business.
  • Courses offered span a variety of areas that includes computer science, electrical engineering, industrial engineering, chemical and biological engineering, and economics
  • Interaction with several of Koç University’s 200+ research laboratories

As a newly established program, faculty members are on the lookout for driven and academically outstanding candidates who want to expand their engineering capabilities and gain an industry sought-after degree that will increase their post-graduation career choices to new fields (e.g. banking, finance, consulting, and government) and long-term career trajectories.
