Data Science

JKU will presently not offer an autonomous study program Data science. However, there is the possibility to choose a course specialization Data Science in the Master Studiies Statistics, Computer Science and Business Informatics.

We recommend students of Statistics, who are interested in specifics in Data Science beyond that to select courses from computer science, business intelligence, machine learning, and artificial intelligence as free electives in their bachelor's program and masters' program Statistics.
