Master’s degree program at UAS Technikum Wien
Analysts for the Most Valuable Resource of the Information Society
Data Science is a young, but clearly established and highly demanded field. The interdisciplinary role of data scientists requires a multi-faceted course of study. After all, data analysis is not an end in itself, but must always be considered in the context of the tasks and goals of a company or organization. Graduates of the program can use their skills to support decision-making processes in all phases.

This is an exceptionally high-demand job description, and this degree program strikes a chord with the labor market’s need for data professionals.
Master’s degree programs build on a completed bachelor’s degree program and allow students to specialize or focus on topics in more detail or to expand their existing expertise.
You must meet subject-matter requirements to be admitted to the Data Science master’s degree program. Prerequisites include a bachelor’s degree from a UAS in a relevant subject matter or an equivalent degree from a recognized post-secondary educational institution (at least 180 ECTS credits) in Austria or another country.
If basic equivalence has been established except for a few missing prerequisites, the program director can require students to take exams to establish full equivalence. These exams are taken during the master’s program.
