The Data Science program can typically be completed in one-and-a-half to two years. It blends leading-edge courses in core topics such as machine learning, big data analytics, and statistics, with a variety of electives and an opportunity to apply these techniques in a target domain specialization — a concentration — of choice. The concentrations offer both preparatory coursework and a thesis or practicum in a data science application area. Moreover, for students interested in other areas within Penn Engineering and the physical sciences regarding computers, Penn Engineering offers a specialized and synergistic MSE Degree in Scientific Computing.

Penn was ranked 8th among all US universities in a leading national study , and our mathematics graduate program was recently highest in a study of graduate programs in arts and sciences at Penn. We have a very active and involved mathematics faculty , diverse course offerings and a broad seminar schedule , with a variety of research projects and strengths in algebra, analysis, geometry-topology, combinatorics, logic, probability, and mathematical physics. We have a supportive atmosphere, with personal attention from the faculty and extensive interaction among graduate students. Our grad students can take courses not only in the Mathematics Department but also elsewhere at Penn, and the wide resources of the university are available. Our former graduate students have gone on to mathematical careers both in academia and in industry.
The Data Science Program can typically be completed in one-and-a-half to two years. It blends leading-edge courses in core topics such as machine learning , big data analytics , and statistics, with a variety of electives and an opportunity to apply these techniques in a domain specialization — a depth area — of choice. The depth area offers both preparatory coursework and a thesis or practicum in a data science application area. For students interested in applying data analysis and modeling to other areas within engineering and the physical sciences, Penn offers a specialized and synergistic program in Scientific Computing. Penn provides the perfect environment for data science enthusiasts, with its strong cross-disciplinary traditions.
