  • WCAG_anchor02 September 2014 - A JOINT MASTERS IN BIG DATA FOR ÉCOLE POLYTECHNIQUE AND TÉLÉCOM PARISTECH

    The 2014-2015 academic year sees the start of a new Masters 2 course in "Mathematics for big data science" at École polytechnique and Télécom ParisTech.

    This two-year course is based on applied mathematics and computing. By developing students’ practical skills as well as their theoretical knowledge of the relevant field, it will cover every facet of Big Data.

    The joint Masters, with accreditation from the Ministry of Education, Higher Education and Research, is a response to the expectations of the Big Data plan initiated by the government, which appealed to universities to create Data Sciences courses. The programme aims to respond to the needs of industry by providing the expertise currently lacking in this strategic sector.
