Master of Data Science

The goal of the Data Science area of study is to equip students with both practical tools and theoretical knowledge to make sense of large amounts of data. We will explore popular tools being used today (i.e., Python), deep-learning libraries, advanced probabilistic-reasoning tools and distributed-computation systems (i.e., Sparks).

This area of study will integrate faculty expertise from Electrical and Computer Engineering, Computer Science and Computational Medicine.

The curriculum will focus on unifying statistics, data mining and analysis, machine learning, and distributed and parallel systems to understand and analyze large amounts of data. During the lectures, students will learn various theoretical and algorithmic computational models and theory. They will then use these tools to analyze real-world data for their projects.

Submitting your international transcripts
When applying to a UCLA graduate program, international applicants should upload unofficial transcripts from all academic institutions she or he attended into the Application for Graduate Admission.

If admitted to UCLA, applicants must submit official, final academic records. These are defined as original documents issued by the institution—not photocopies—which bear the actual signature of the Registrar and the seal of the issuing institution. Instructions and deadlines for submission are included with official offers of admission. New graduate students should submit official records in the original language with a complete, authorized English translation.

If you have attended more than one institution, separate official records should be submitted by each institution.

If your academic record cannot be replaced, obtain a properly certified copy. Keep the original for yourself! Never send a document to UCLA that cannot be replaced; submitted records become the property of the University, and we cannot return them to you.
