MS Concentration in Data Science

The Biomedical Engineering MS Concentration in Data Science provides an opportunity to develop a general foundation in data science and the opportunity to build skills in subfields of the discipline. Students complete the Data Science concentration better equipped to develop comprehensive data science pipelines, using computational data analysis for the estimation, prediction, design, and control of engineering systems.
