MS Data Science


Available Fall 2021.

Have you ever noticed how an Amazon, Google or Netflix search always seems to come up with the right recommendation to your queries no matter how incomplete or cryptic the input?  What is the underlying technology behind this success?  The answer is Data Science.

Ever wondered about the size of data generated every day?  According to Eric Schmidt (CEO of Google from 2001-11), “There were 5 Exabytes of information created between the dawn of civilization through 2003, but that much information is now created every 2 days.”  Isn’t that crazy?   Businesses from IBM to Ford Motor Company, nonprofits, government, and other organizations need skilled professionals who can help maximize opportunities and create strategies in an ever increasing digital world.  Let’s face it, we are living in a world which completely relies on the collection, cleaning, formatting, and analysis of data to project, optimize, and interpret trends in order to derive business value.

Earning a MS in Data Science from Kettering University can help you build these technical and leadership skills required for today’s data-driven world. The program focuses on developing practical skills in statistics, computing technologies, including data mining, machine learning, and cloud computing, as well as visualization.  Like other Kettering Graduate Degree Programs, graduate students in the MS Data Science Program will get hands-on professional experience either working with faculty member on a research project, completing an internship with one of Kettering’s almost 600 Corporate partners or completing a capstone data science project from start to finish.  Special courses in Advanced Mobility, Machine Learning and Cybersecurity are also available for students to prepare them for opportunities in the Data Science field.  Sounds pretty cool, doesn’t it?  For more information regarding the degree curriculum, requirements and objectives, please click here.
