M2 EIT DIGITAL DSC
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, now 9) 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.
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 2017-18 cohort sponsor' is SAP Labs France located nearby, in Mougins, whose head is Ms Olena KUSHAKOVSKA.
The core of the courses of the exit point is grounded on the Master 2 Computer Science IFI, joint with the 5th year of study of Polytech Nice-Sophia Engineering school, applied maths and computer science tracks, to which are plugged specific Master 2 Mathematical Engineering (like avanced statistics) courses.
Overall, the exit point in Data Science program at UNS offers a specialization in Multimedia and Web Science for Big Data.
