Data Science

We live in an age of digital revolutions, led by cloud and mobile technologies that generate staggering volumes of data. The world streams hundreds of thousands of hours of video, sends millions of messages, and places tens of thousands of online orders every minute.

Now in the pandemic era, more of us than ever before are dependent on apps and virtual services to learn, work, socialize, eat, relax, and connect.

The ability to make sense of this data, foresee commercial or socially valuable applications, and communicate insights are fast becoming the world’s most sought-after skills.

The Koç University Data Science graduate program provides the training, experience, and tools necessary to succeed in today’s data-driven workplace.
