The analysis of data is currently placed within a multidisciplinary perspective linking industrial domains, life sciences, data, statistics and computer science (structured and unstructured database, programming, Machine Learning, etc.).

The main objectives of this training are to provide students with a basic knowledge of these areas of science and a practice of data science.

This course combines theory and methodology, involving all aspects of data science, from acquisition to analysis and exploitation


At the end of the training, students will be able to analyze, exploit and extract basic knowledge from structured and unstructured data. They will aquire:

  • the mastery of basic knowledge in the field of data science,
  • the skills to process the acquired data,
  • the ability to extract relevant information via data mining and analysis of this information.

Beyond these technical skills, students will also have acquired transversal skills in "soft skills" (communication, teamwork and English) and "business skills" (innovation, entrepreneurship, project management, Collective intelligence...) allowing them to interact effectively in their future work environments.
