The Data science sub-specialization is one of four Specialist Graduate Professional Study Programme in the field of applied computer engineering.
When you delve into the curriculum of this course, you will see that it encompasses the area of data analysis, social network analysis, affective computing, machine learning of statistics analysis, quantitative analytical methods, data visualization, and also fundamental business concepts suitable for graduate level.
Apart from the fundamentals, you will learn how to use those skills to create a “story” based on data (“data driven business”. Contextualizing based on data, also called “storytelling” is considered to be one of the most important skills today. It is recommended as a universal skill each of us should strive to perfect. Our society is based on stories that form the base for our way of communicating, living and dreaming.
Upon receiving our diploma, you’ll become a true specialist for data science. This is an inter-disciplinary field, which the industry calls the ‘Fourth Paradigm’ of science. You’ll learn how to analyze and process large amounts of data and to extrapolate information required for sound business operations.Student guide

Interaction between a human being and a computer, in which the computer recognizes, interprets and reacts to a person’s emotions and expressions. The course will introduce you to the basics of analyzing and recognizing affective states. We’ll explore the characteristics of affective expressions and find out all the ways that computers can gather data on the user (facial expressions, posture, gestures, voice and temperature changes). We’ll also be looking at practical applications and development of models for recognizing affective states in industries.See more
