M1 DSC: EIT Digital Master 1 in Data Science

The EIT Digital Master Programmes are a two-year M.Sc. with compulsory geographical and organizational mobility for the students, including a mandatory summer school between the first and the second year. DSC (Data Science) is one of these.

The programmes consist in eight (8) different majors and are run through a co-operation between 20 of the top technical universities in Europe. The focal point of all these two-years master programme majors is that they include 30 ECTS of Innovation and Entrepreneurship (I&E) which is taught mainly during the 1st year of Master. Students have a prominent opportunity to turn the theory into practice through the participation in 2-3 weeks of summer school, where most of the time is devoted to a business plan development project and to thematic presentations, company visits, and social activities.

Data Science (DSC) acts as both an entry (M1) and an exit (M2) point.  The 2015-16 cohort' sponsor is Amadeus Head of Innovation Landry Holi. The 2016-17 cohort' sponsor is IBM Global Industry Solution center Nice - Paris Jean Michel Corrieu.

The core of the courses of the entry point is grounded on the
Master 1 Computer Science IFI, International Track, to which are plugged specific Master 2 / Polytech Engineering school in Sciences Informatiques 5th year courses (like Data mining and Big data technologies).

The exit point in Data Science at UNS offers a specialization in Multimedia and Web Science for Big Data
