Master’s in Data Science for Engineering Specialists

Data Science has permeated across disciplines and can be utilized to build enterprise grade applications, find cures to diseases, develop solutions to industry problems or even address ways to prevent environmental degradation in an ethical manner.

The INSOFE/Case Western Reserve University collaboration has hence come up with unique masters’ programs for engineering specialists who wish to combine their domain specialization with data science knowledge. Students can pursue computer science specialization, mechanical engineering, biomedical engineering, or civil engineering under this partnership.

The masters data science program as part of this collaboration will require the student to complete all coursework in data science in India prior to traveling to Case School of Engineering (Cleveland, USA) to take the engineering domain specialization courses.

While the INSOFE courses can be taken as part-time classes, the coursework at Case School of Engineering is full-time and requires the students to be present on-campus in the USA to receive a master’s degree.

Students will work on real-world projects to gain the practical skills required to work in the industry. All classes are taught in a manner that focus on teaching applied data science and engineering skills to the students so graduates can attain a successful career as a data scientist, data analyst or machine learning engineer upon completing the program requirements.

Students who complete all the program requirements with INSOFE and Case Western Reserve University will graduate with a Master of Science in engineering and data science and become eligible to apply for up to 3 years OPT in the USA.
