About Data Science and Engineering at EURECOM

The "Big Data" phenomenon is rooted in the field of data science and engineering, which aims at developing both computer and mathematical tools for data storage,processing and analytics. An increasing volume of data is daily produced by modern day industrial processes (in fields such as energy, intelligent transport systems, health, tourism and many others...), and fuelled by the rise of multimedia content being shared and the Internet of Things in our daily life. Artificial Intelligence is now empowering applications which requires large scale and smart processing of data to build accurate predictive models.

Key Words: Big Data, Data Science, Machine Learning, Data Mining, Deep Learning, Business Intelligence, Web Science, Artificial Intelligence

OBJECTIVES:

  • Combine computer and statistical sciences to develop cutting-edge and fundamental tools to efficiently address data processing problems.
  • Learn how to develop methods, algorithms and software capable to extract knowledge and insights out of huge masses of heterogonous data with several dimensions.
  • Provide a cohesive blend of technical classes in machine learning, data mining, information extraction and distributed systems coupled with fundamentals in Business, Innovation and Project Management to develop profiles.

What students think about EURECOM

    "I definitely recommend spending a year at EURECOM to anyone" Eino (Finland)

    "I definitely recommend EURECOM!

    The university building is small and all students are exchange students, so the atmosphere is very positive and social.

    The professors are from many different countries and are motivated to lecture and research.

    The topics of the courses and research are timely and that boosts studying motivation.

    Cote d'Azur as a location is awesome, because here we have only a few months of the "Finnish spring" and the rest of the time it is summer.

    One should not fear the infamous bureaucracy of France, because there are many members of the staff of the university, that gladly assist with all the practicalities.

    There are multiple opportunities to learn the French language, but knowing the language is not a requisite, as everything can be done in English."

    "Well, a year spent at EURECOM was definitely magnifique!" - Ivan (RUSSIA)

    Level of education is high here, so don’t be surprised that you will be required to work a lot. On the other hand, knowledge you’re getting here, is up to date with what industry requires and more often even beyond it (since EURECOM is not just a university, it is also a research center).

    University administration, teachers and assistants are very friendly and tending to help you in case you got stuck with something. It’s almost like a small family :)

    As well as getting in touch with modern trends in industry, you will have an opportunity to explore an amazing location of Cote d’Azur. There is no need to introduce French Riviera, just have a look on the map and see the distances between all famous locations. There is actually a lot to visit!.

    Also, since there is quite few students (from all over the world), you will easily get your “travel buddy” or “chillin’ buddy” with who you will have (for sure a lot of) great memories and fascinating trips all over the seashore.

    For me personally, it was a great experience and I’m really grateful, that I had this opportunity.

    Life wouldn’t be the same after spending some time here. You will get new opportunities, new friends and warm memories.

    Long story short, if you’re looking for some changes in life, a good adventure or a good time, this is the right place!"

    Janita, Jomar, Eirik, Christian, Fredrik, Amund, Marius (NORWAY)

    "We (Janita, Jomar, Eirik, Christian, Fredrik, Amund, Marius, and all) went to EURECOM in order to do something a bit different for our fourth year, and it turned out to be a great choice.

    Here we get:

    - Smaller courses of 5 or 3 credits, meaning you can get a quite broad spectrum.

    - A great fit with the track we are taking back home - getting the course choices approved is not very difficult. (We are from elsys, komtek and data).

    - A very international group of friends

    - Good financial support from Erasmus, lånekassen and CAF.

    - Super nice weather!
