Master of Science in Engineering in Data Science (MSE-DS) Online


The online Master’s of Science in Engineering in Data Science (MSE-DS Online) program is designed for highly motivated students who are passionate about the future of data engineering. Qualified applicants should either have an undergraduate degree in computer science, or an undergraduate degree in a highly quantitative field (e.g., statistics, math, physics, etc.) with significant exposure to computer science (or have completed a minor in computer science). Successful candidates will need to have 15-20 hours per course each week to devote to the program.

In MSE-DS Online, you will dive deep into topics such as artificial intelligence, big data systems, data science for health, deep learning, natural language processing, Internet and web systems, machine learning, etc. As a graduate of the MSE-DS Online program you will have: the ability to formulate and evaluate hypotheses using statistical and computational methods; the expertise to bring together data from many sources; the capacity to handle big and high-velocity data; the skills to build models, visualizations, and queries to analyze data; and the mastery to leverage machine learning methods to cluster data and make predictions.

With the standards you’d expect from an Ivy League institution, the online format allows students of varied ages, experiences, and backgrounds to access a Penn education from any location.
