This specialisation (for MSc CS students) enables you to:- Evaluate the performance characteristics of data science applications
Data science enables forecasts, possibly in real-time, at ever lower cost and better accuracy for the benefit of our society. Today, data scientists are able to collect more data, access that data faster, and apply more complex data analysis than ever. These advances are mainly due to the exponential evolution of hardware combined with the emergence of machine learning frameworks, boosting the productivity of data scientists. It is the responsibility of data engineers, software engineers, IoT experts and data scientists to design solutions that perform at scale yet remain sustainable.
Students are expected to have introductory knowledges of systems programming, operating systems and database systems. Following the courses C & Operating System, Introductory Programming and Introduction to Databases satisfy these prerequisites.
In general, the specialisation requires a willingness to engage with the software and hardware infrastructure of data science.
