    “The Master aims to build a strong foundation in mathematics, computer science and applications to be able to continue learning in the growing field of data science. The low class size and the close contact to the professors not only allowed me to diligently study foundations and consequently state-of-the-art methods, but also make the rather intense learning journey an enjoyable one. A personal highlight of the Master would be the fact that I feel prepared for both careers in academia and industry.””
