MSDS Program Update

Mitsunori Ogihara, Brain Investigators Collaborative InitiativeApplications continue to rise for the University’s Master of Science in Data Science (MSDS) program. Now in its second year, this graduate program is expecting 15 new students for the fall semester, according to Mitsu Ogihara, Ph.D., professor of computer science, site director of the National Science Foundation’s University of Miami CARTA (UM CARTA), and director of IDSC Workforce Development and Education.

“We are committed to steadily growing the MSDS program, based on the interests of U.S. and international students,” said Ogihara. “Next year, we might increase enrollment to 20+ students. We also celebrated the August graduation of four students from our first cohort, who all said they were very satisfied with the program.”

Ogihara also thanked IDSC’s industrial partners who offer MSDS students an internship as a hands-on learning experience in the program. “We can also leverage the UM CARTA site to create additional internship opportunities for the master’s students,” he added.

“This is a very personalized program,
where students can focus on
their areas of interest and
work at their own pace.”


The MSDS program offers 6 areas of concentration:

  • Technical Data Science for students who wish to pursue careers in machine learning, data mining, data engineering, programming, and big data analytics.  Most courses are taken within the College of Arts and Sciences’ Departments of Computer Science and Mathematics, and the College of Engineering.
  • Smart Cities for students who wish to pursue careers in urban planning and design, information and communication technology, the Internet of things, and sustainable built environments.  Most courses are taken within the School of Architecture.

A seventh “Cumulative” focus is also possible, applying data science to all fields and tailored to the student’s interest.

“This is a very personalized program, where students can focus on their areas of interest and work at their own pace,” said Ogihara. “It is an ideal way to develop data science skills and apply them to a wide range of professional fields.”
