The Master of Science in Data Engineering is a four-semester program at the Faculty of Digital Engineering, a faculty jointly founded by the Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI) and the University of Potsdam (UP).
In their studies, students deepen the scientific foundations of computer science and acquire theoretical, methodical and practical skills to deal with complex information systems. The focus thereby is on the core areas of data management, data analysis, and data visualization. Focused on actual problems from industry and research, students learn to map the real process of a data-driven project.
Besides receiving in-depth knowledge of IT technology, students achieve competency in so-called soft skills, which play a vital role in the successful management of large IT projects.
