DSTI Student’s Testimonials
This Applied MSc programme programme is composed of all the following modules*, which are actual hours of class presence
(personal work is expected on top of these):
* Please note that course content and support technologies may vary when delivered according to job market needs and under the supervision of Data ScienceTech Institute Scientific Advisory Board.
** Provided you are not subject to any Sanction Programmes of the United States of America which would affect your rights to take these classes and/or examinations.
All students will be assigned engineering projects attached to courses of programme. Students will conduct projects throughout the year until their classes finish and they go to their work placement . These Engineering Projects aim to apply all the knowledge and skills acquired in the different classes and to use DSTI professors as mentors and coaches throughout the year. Some of these projects may come from applied research work done by our Professors affiliated to a research lab.
Once the classes are finished, our Applied MSc students can choose between going for a work placement or working on an advanced engineering project and dissertation. DSTI strongly encourages On-Campus students towards industrial placement and advanced engineering projects for online education students ones.
On-Campus students are strongly encouraged to choose the 6-month work placement option (805hrs, 35hrs/week) and immerse themselves into a data science industrial environment. Finding a work placement opportunity is a student’s responsibility. DSTI provides active help, advice and support throughout its industrial and academic partners network however.
Online education students will be tutored by a DSTI Professor in selecting a data science engineering problem for a given industrial application and write an engineering proposal, covering state-of-the-art literature, to propose a solution. On-Campus students may also choose this engineering project as an alternative to a work placement.
* 540hrs is an evaluated time, which accounts for the 200hrs already spent during the classes time and equivalent to four months of legal full-time work in France (35hrs per week), of requirement commitment to perform the project.
