850-hour internship (6 months) – The internship is equivalent to 30 ECTS

In this Applied MSc programme, you will:

  • Learn how to understand the analysis, design, implementation & monitoring of IT & Big Data architectures;
  • Leverage the most prevalent programming languages and their libraries for applied machine and deep learning;
  • Learn how to architect and deploy highly distributed data and computation clusters such as Hadoop or SPARK;
  • Discover the DevOps world and set up continuous integration architecture.

Preparatory Bootcamp

Data ScienceTech Institute is offering all future students a bootcamp to get you up to speed on skills required to start leveraging the different topics of our applied programmes.For Data Engineering for AI, this applied BootCamp lasts 15 days (3 weeks)and can be followed on-campus or online.

The DSTI bootCamp is a fundamental piece of preparation for your studies. As an integral part of the programmes, it prepares DSTI students to all the base knowledge in applied mathematics and IT for a smooth start. According to your profile, some parts may be known, but even then, we’ve have plenty of students’ feedback telling us how important it was to refresh former knowledge.

As a full-time student, you may not have time to attend it live as it’s delivered four weeks before the start of “Applied Mathematics” (a tradition at DSTI). But it’s recorded and available to unlimited replay. And SPOC students do not have this issue: they all start with the BootCamp!
