MS in Data Science -
Cloud Computing

Drive your career with a versatile master’s degree focused on the data science of cloud computing.

The University of Connecticut’s (UConn) Master’s (MS) in Data Science - Cloud Computing concentration is a 30-credit on-campus (Storrs Campus) graduate degree focused on data science methods used within cloud computing-related fields. Consisting of 18 credits of UConn data science core courses paired with 9 credits of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) courses, the program culminates with a 3-credit capstone project. The capstone experience provides graduates an in-depth understanding of how to apply data science knowledge and techniques to the cloud computing challenges faced by many organizations.

The intensely expanding field of Cloud Computing naturally pairs with data science.

Today, many large and small companies have transitioned their data to cloud storage solutions and the need for talented data science professionals to analyze data is growing quickly. UConn Data Science Cloud Computing students gain practical skills concerning the tools and methodologies highly prized by solution oriented problem solvers. The capstone experience provides graduates an in-depth understanding of intersections between data science and cloud computing, and experience working with unstructured, semi-structured, and structured data.
