SPRING SEMESTER 
Mathematical Tools for Data ScienceData science is about learning from data. It is rapidly emerging as a fundamental pillar of our digital society. Positioned at the intersection of Applied Mathematics, Computer Science and Statistics, it demands an integrated approach, where individuals possess solid knowledge and a sound intuition of how to handle (complex) data with uncertainty, how to formulate pertinent questions, and how to solve them using mathematical modeling and efficient numerical algorithms, taking advantage of specialized software. The MSSG Spring Semester offers a range of courses aimed at strengthening these indispensable skills. Special emphasis is placed on projectbased learning, allowing students to put their knowledge into practice and gain handson experience. The goal of MSSG Spring Semester is to provide students with a solid and rigorous problem solvingoriented understanding of Data Science. Data science involves strong interactions between statistics, mathematical modeling, pure mathematics and computer science. Students will be exposed to concepts and terminology for preparing them to communicate with and take part in Data Science teams. In addition, they will learn the fundamental theoretical bases of quantitative methods, statistical models, and computer science, equipping them with the ability to choose relevant and efficient algorithmic solutions for solving problems in Data Science and mathematical modeling.
