学位概况

A flexible and affordable degree from one of the top Computer Science programs in the world, focused on one of the hottest fields of the new millennium.

Enroll in the Master of Computer Science in Data Science (MCS-DS) and gain access to the computational and statistical knowledge needed to turn big data into meaningful insights. Build expertise in four core areas of computer science—data visualization, machine learning, data mining, and cloud computing—while learning key skills in statistics and information science. This completely online degree is an affordable gateway to one of the most lucrative and fastest growing careers of the new millennium.

The MCS-DS is offered by CS @ ILLINOIS, a U.S. News & World Report top five CS graduate program, in collaboration with the University’s Statistics Department and top-ranked iSchool. Join our alumni network of entrepreneurs, educators, and technical visionaries, who have revolutionized the way people communicate, shop, conduct business, and are entertained. From the ILLIAC to Blue Waters, OpenMP to MPI, Mosaic to YouTube, and the first vectorizing compilers to LLVM, CS @ ILLINOIS has long been at the forefront of excellence in computing and education.

Who is this degree for:

Professionals who want to use big data to understand the world, discover new insights, and optimize their decision-making will find value in the MCS-DS program. Analyzing the rising tide of data has become important to a wide range of fields, including the humanities, medicine, and business, as well as engineering and the sciences. Students will gain a strong foundation that will enable them to bring data science to bear on these areas. The program is designed so that students can complete it at their own pace as they balance their personal and professional commitments. Most students complete the degree in less than three years, though it can be completed in as little as one year or, if needed, as many as five years.

Tuition:

Tuition for the MCS-DS is $600 per credit hour, for a total of $19,200 for the complete 32 credit hour degree. There are additional fees from Coursera, ProctorU, and, depending on the course, Amazon Web Services. Though the department does not have any assistantships or scholarships available for this program, domestic students may qualify for Federal Student Aid, since the MCS-DS is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission.
