MME-DDS / DDS Content
Our world and businesses in particular face disruptive change due to exponential growth of both the amount of data which can be captured from a wide range of data-sources and the computational capabilities to process the data. Future experts and managers will need to understand how to leverage Data Analytics and Decision Science to create value from data - this is what you will learn in this Master Program.
This exciting new master course is designed at the intersection of the fields of Data Analytics and Decision Science (Operations Research) and graduates will learn how to combine machine learning and deep learning techniques with mathematical optimization approaches, heuristic algorithms and simulation techniques to create value in specific application areas. RWTH Aachen is ranked number one in the field of Statistics & Operational Research in Germany by the QS World University Ranking 2017.
Data is becoming the new "oil", the raw material from which value is created as businesses become predictive enterprises and digitize their value chain. Each industry sector and application area will benefit from deriving optimal business decisions using data-driven techniques. Operational decisions are supported or even automated using state-of-the-art machine learning models combined with optimization techniques.
Become tomorrow’s technological expert by enrolling in our Master Program which combines the fields of Data Analytics and Decision Science. Learn how to develop state-of-the-art predictive models and how to take decisions that optimize business objectives.
Future Data Analytics and Decision Science experts will need to bring together expertise from a wide range of fields:
- Machine learning, deep learning, and artificial intelligence
- Mathematical optimization, heuristic algorithms and simulation techniques
- Understanding, handling and enriching data
- Industry-specific knowledge (e.g. manufacturing & production, logistics & supply chain management, retail, engineering, energy & climate and others)
Students enrolled in this program will learn fundamental and leading edge advances in machine learning, artificial intelligence, operations research and decision science. The courses are taught by world-leading experts in their respective fields. Elective modules allow the student to specialize in a variety of fields such as production or logistics to gain a deep understanding of specific industries.
