Since MSE-DS Online is a new program, it has been submitted to the state agency for consideration and is pending approval.
No, the program is 100 percent online. That said, one of our optional Open Elective courses, DATO 5990 Practicum, includes a one-week on-campus intensive component.
MSE-DS Online is a degree centered on computer science. The curriculum is computationally focused and includes courses such as artificial intelligence, big data systems, data science for health, deep learning, natural language processing, internet and web systems, machine learning, etc. These courses will primarily correspond with two of the on-campus elective tracks: Data-centric programming and Data Analysis/Artificial Intelligence. For the courses that are offered, the content is the same between on-campus and online.
Current Penn Engineering Online students may begin the Graduate Certificate application process in the final term of their degree program.
