Our graduate programs incorporate elements of Statistics, Computer Science, and Optimization. The need for integrated graduate training across these disciplines is acutely felt across all industries. Our aim is to provide breadth and depth in all three of these areas as they pertain to the emerging and world-recognized discipline of Data Science. Individuals with knowledge in this discipline are in high demand.

Whether upgrading your education with a course-based co-op master's program, or embarking on a research-based master's, you can look forward to an inspiring, connected, relevant journey of discovery.
