    8.8 /10

    Right from scratch when I entered the university I was empowered to make the best choices for my future career. After taking admission in the course I was assigned a student group that helped me in my further journey in Sweden. An unconditional acceptance letter from the university helped me to take my application forward.

    Course Curriculum :

    Applied Data Science is multi-disciplinary by nature, and this program was designed to allow space for us to create our own profiles by choosing optional courses. I was also given an opportunity to choose courses in areas such as Data Science methods, courses in technical areas and technologies. We were particularly encouraged to supplement the compulsory courses.
