M1 DSC: EIT Digital Master 1 in Data Science

The EIT Digital Master Programmes are a two-year M.Sc. with compulsory geographical and organizational mobility for the students, including a mandatory summer school between the first and the second year. DSC (Data Science) is one of these.

The programmes consist in eight (8, recently 9) different majors and are run through a co-operation between 20 of the top technical universities in Europe. The focal point of all these two-years master programme majors is that they include 30 ECTS of Innovation and Entrepreneurship (I&E) which is taught mainly during the 1st year of Master. Students have a prominent opportunity to turn the theory into practice through the participation in 2-3 weeks of summer school, where most of the time is devoted to a business plan development project and to thematic presentations, company visits, and social activities.

Data Science (DSC) acts as both an entry (M1) and an exit (M2) point.  The 2015-16 cohort' sponsor is Amadeus Head of Innovation Landry Holi. The 2016-17 cohort' sponsor is IBM Global Industry Solution center Nice - Paris Jean Michel Corrieu. The 2017-18 cohort sponsor' is SAP Labs France located nearby, in Mougins, whose head is Ms Olena

The core of the courses of the entry point is grounded on the
Master 1 Computer Science IFI, International Track, to which are plugged specific Master 2 / Polytech Engineering school in Sciences Informatiques 5th year courses (like Data mining and Big data technologies).
From September 2018, a new programme for the entry point is under deployment, but shares most of the previous contents. It is part of the newly national wide funded Graduate school (EUR) Digital systems for Humans, as part of the renewed Computer science master of UNS/Université Côte d'Azur.
The exit point in Data Science at UNS offers a specialization in Multimedia and Web Science for Big Data. The new program will only be deployed from September 2019. So, students coming from september 2018 will follow the same program as before, as described on the M2 DSC web page.
