  • Data structures
  • Machine learning
  • Algorithms

Additionally, the students pursuing this degree are also taught to use the collected data and use it alternately to make well-informed decisions that help analyze data to solve complex problems in the real world.

Scope of Masters in Data Science  

Data dominates the entire world. Whether you look from a government perspective where they need to introduce a new scheme or see the perspective of a multinational company that wants to market a new product, it is only a set of data that guides them on what to do and how to do it. As the reliance on data is increasing daily to make wiser decisions, so is the need for data scientists.
