Gain the knowledge necessary to apply advances in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to areas of business and science in practical ways in the data science Ph.D. program at Stevens.
Data scientists with a deep knowledge of the theories, techniques and applications related to big data and artificial intelligence are in high demand. The Stevens data science Ph.D. program prepares students for research careers in academia or industry that involve methods and systems for extracting insights from rich data sets in financial services and life sciences.
The data science Ph.D. program is an interdisciplinary program of the Schaefer School of Engineering and Science and the School of Business. This program was developed with input from industry partners with emerging A.I. concepts like machine learning and language processing in mind to ensure mastery of the most important principles in this discipline.
The program has a strong practical research component, so students will need the intellectual curiosity to do important research alongside Stevens faculty who are breaking new ground in theory and application of data science.
