UiO Data Science

UiO Data Science is a community for researchers and users of data science. While most of the research activity takes place at the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Science, other faculties, departments, centres and projects are actively involved.

New Master's program in Data Science from 2018. Check admission requirements.

The purpose of these web pages is to collect information on data science related activities, research, courses and competence at the University of Oslo. The pages are intended for students and researchers, as well as for a general audience interested in the creation of understanding and value from large and complex data in public and private sector.

Data Science Network

Data Science is an active research topic across several faculties and departments. In addition, many researchers at the University of Oslo apply Data Science in their work. The university also collaborates with external partners on Data Science research and activities.

Data Science Studies

The University of Oslo offers many opportunities for those seeking an education and career in Data Science. We offer a wide selection of topics in Data Science and related disciplines.

From autumn 2017, there is a specialisation in Data Science in the Mathematics with informatics bachelor program. As of autumn 2018, we offer a master program in Data Science.

Advisory Service

We plan to open a data science advisory service in 2018. The service will be free, and available to researchers at the University of Oslo. We will provide advise regarding data gathering, data cleaning, and data analysis.
