Master's in Simulation and Data Sciences
Offered by the Cyprus Institute
Accredited by the Cyprus Accreditation Authority
Simulation and Data Science is a unique course in Cyprus that combines Simulation with the new field of Data Science. As computers speed up and instruments and sensors become more advanced, the amount of data collected is increasing exponentially, needing large-scale computing to analyse it. All disciplines, such as environmental, biological, chemical, physical sciences, financial economics, and the humanities are generating massive amounts of data, and only by using computational and data science we can address the current and future data challenges. The Master of Science in Simulation and Data Science is a program that will provide a unique interdisciplinary approach to solve critically important problems, using applied mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, statistics and computing. Through modeling, simulation, data mining, and study of specific phenomena via computer analysis, students will learn to apply computation and data analytics to gain new insights.
The objective of the program is to prepare students for a career as computational and data scientists in the private or public sector in fields such as physical sciences, life sciences, environmental science, health, medicine, and digital humanities. Students may also pursue doctoral studies in a variety of computational and data science related fields. Combining theoretical with practically focused training in mathematical and statistical modeling, machine learning, feature engineering, programming, data management and visualization, the Master of Science in Simulation and Data Science program aims to provide a well-rounded education for students who wish to advance in the data science field.
