TRU launches MSc in Data Science

April 7, 2020

Thompson Rivers University has created a Master of Science in Data Science program to train students in big data interpretation. The two-year program will include key courses and allow students to engage in a thesis or project that will involve applied problem solving. The program is personalized to the student, enabling them to specialize in an area with guidance from faculty members. “There are ways in which better decisions can be made by giving people the ability to determine patterns from massive amounts of data,” explained TRU Dean of Science Tom Dickinson. The program is expected to launch this fall and will begin with an intake of approximately 10 students. TRU (BC)
