The new degree on Mathematical Engineering in Data Science from the Pompeu Fabra University is designed for talented mathematicians who are interested in pursuing sophisticated theory relevant to modern application domains requiring large-scale data analysis.
This degree provides, on the one hand, the fundamental skills that allow to process and organize large-scale volumes of information automatically. On the other hand, it provides the required statistical and machine learning tools to extract information from these data and to help in the decision making process.
It proposes a solid training in mathematics and computer science that the student can extend to different types of data such as natural language, images, video, audio or music, as well as in those knowledge specific areas that use of massive data, such as personalised medicine, social network analysis, logistics or business, among others. Finally, it will be possible to delve into the mathematical techniques that are very promising in current research in data science.
