About Data Science (DSC) at EIT Digital Master School

Big Data can provide important insights into business processes and uncover opportunities to cut costs and increase efficiency. Furthermore, data analytics enables organisations to effectively target specific audiences and to adapt product characteristics based on customer preferences. It can also be used to improve the decision-making process. 

Yet despite the big potential of Big Data, many companies are blind to the value of the data they create.

It’s time for that to change - and our Data Science programme equips you with the skills to drive this change. 

What you will gain

Our interdisciplinary programme is designed to cover both the theoretical and the practical. We use a combination of face-to-face workshops, group activities, and hands-on exercises to cover everything from the basics of data analysis to such specific skills as:

  • Data capture
  • Data storage
  • Transferring data
  • Visualising data
  • Data pricing
  • Data protection

The programme also includes ample opportunities to acquire the business and entrepreneurial skills. This includes the chance to apply your new skills and knowledge towards bringing a really innovative solution to the market and developing a successful business model.

What students think about EIT Digital Master School

    Carlos Callejo

    Data science is a fascinating topic nowadays and I thought learning it would grant me great opportunities. Also, I am an avid traveler: studying at two different universities in two countries, and the chance to attend events in other countries, is a dream.

    The masters also gave me the opportunity to grow my network. In addition to this, a big part of my study costs was waived. I was not so sure about the Innovation and Entrepreneurship part at first. But I was interested in the business side of technology. I thought I could learn a lot from this and it can be helpful in my future. That is why I chose the EIT Digital Master School over the job. And, I have to say, it was the correct decision and my time at the EIT Digital Master School has been my best two years so far.

    Bruno Marafini

    I look back just saying that I made a perfect choice. That is due to a bit of luck. I did not know EIT Digital when I was studying in Bologna. A professor from Trento said: ‘for the ones interested, there is an opportunity of being an EIT Digital Master School student. I started to explore that straight away because I was curious. I found everything matching: I saw the programme Cyber Security, I saw I could do a year in the mountains in Trento, I saw EIT Digital as an opportunity to grow and get to know enterprises, experts, technology experts, business experts, business analysts, and so on, and I saw an opportunity to meet new people. So when I received the news that I got accepted, I was really happy.

    EIT Digital Master School provided me with a strong technical entrepreneurial education. During school, I have met serial entrepreneurs, business partners, top researchers, and other students and teachers from around Europe. We exchange ideas, they inspired me a lot and let me feel the endless creativity. They made me push a little harder, to learn something new and start considering how to make the world we live in better. Especially, the entrepreneurship courses helped me develop a reasonable and clear business development process for our product, which made us earn high scores in business feasibility aspects in the competition.
