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.

From our Graduates

As a graduate student at Koç University's Data Science program, I have been consistently impressed with the depth and breadth of knowledge that I have acquired throughout the program. The program is designed to equip students with a solid foundation in the fundamental principles of data science, such as statistical analysis, machine learning algorithms, and data visualization techniques. The curriculum is rigorous, and each course is taught by experienced professors who are passionate about their subject matter. In addition, the program includes a variety of elective courses that allow students to specialize in areas such as natural language processing, deep learning, and big data analytics.

One of the most valuable aspects of the program is the hands-on experience that students receive. We work on real-world projects, solving complex problems that require us to apply the skills we have learned in the classroom. This experience has been invaluable in preparing me for a career in the data science field.

Overall, I highly recommend Koç University's data science program to anyone interested in pursuing a career in data science. The program is comprehensive, the professors are exceptional, and the hands-on experience is invaluable.
