Master of Science Data Analysis and Pattern Classification (DATAPAC)

Engineering degree - Master’s level

Courses are taught in English during the first year with French courses in parallel. In the second year, lectures are taught in French.

Presentation

This Master of Science meets the growing needs of multimedia data processing for automatic classification or prediction, in a very wide scope of applications. Artificial Intelligence and Signal Processing techniques are taught with an interdisciplinary approach, with particular emphasis in spanning the complete data processing chain: sensing multimedia data, data pre-processing, automatic feature extraction, artificial learning and decision making. Concrete Case Studies are targeted with this particular view, through personalized projects under the supervision of professors.

This Master program may lead to careers in industrial Research and Development departments as well as to a PhD program in a Research Laboratory.

Program Overview

In several applicative areas such as Medical Imaging, Virtual Reality, Telecommunications, Tele-monitoring, Biometrics, Bioinformatics, Environmental Sciences, Banking, Insurance, Data Mining (textual, multimedia), great amounts of data are captured through devoted sensors and must be processed and further analyzed for different purposes related to the application.

This Master degree is designed to provide Signal Processing and Machine Learning tools allowing multi-sensor real data analysis, at each step of the data processing workflow. Raw data captured by sensors is often noisy or degraded and must be pre-processed; then, pertinent information (features) must be extracted and modeled through Machine Learning techniques, for automatic classification or prediction purposes. Through an interdisciplinary approach, advanced knowledge in Signal Processing, Statistical Models, Machine Learning, Computer Vision, Data Fusion, and Content-based Indexing and Retrieval in Multimedia databases is given to future data scientists.

 

Objectives

  • Providing Statistical Learning and Signal Processing tools to model great amounts of data, captured by specialized sensors, for automatic data classification or prediction;
  • Analyzing data from different applicative areas (Environmental Sciences, Telecommunications, Genomics, e-health, Telemedicine, Biometrics, Economics, Banking, Insurance, Multimedia Data Mining, Geo-localization,…)
  • Conceiving complex systems in several areas

 

Whay should you apply?

The Master is open to candidates with a Bachelor Degree in Computer Science, Physics or Engineering from a recognized university. A good background in Mathematics and Computer Science is required.

Language of Instruction

Courses are taught in English during the first year with French courses in parallel. In the second year, lectures are taught in French. Students’ projects or Master Thesis can be written and presented in English or French

 

First year

Level: Master 1
Language of instruction: English
Location: Telecom SudParis, Evry
Cost: 4000 or 6000 euros (see more on Tuition Fees)
Coordinator: Professor Sonia Garcia-Salicetti, Telecom SudParis

Master 1 (M1): This first year of the Master in English enables students to acquire fundamentals in Computer Science, Mathematics, Optimization, Statistical Data Analysis, Signal Processing, Information Theory, French, and carrying out a Scientific Project. This project, in the second semester, is an initiation to research in Data Science, and an occasion for a complete training through practice, while developing oral and written communication skills.
