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

The DataScience@UiO Advisory Service is a service available to students and staff at the University of Oslo. We provide free, face-to-face advice sessions to help you tackle your data science problems.

The Advisory Service is provided by the DataScience@UiO Innovation Cluster in collaboration with BigInsight and SIRIUS. Our group of advisors consists of PhD Research Fellows from DataScience@UiO and senior research staff from BigInsight and SIRIUS.

  • sirius-logo-clean400-1 SIRIUS has an important role to play in data science Mar. 1, 2018 12:19 PM

    Successful data science requires a mixture of statistics, computer science and domain knowledge. In DataScience@UiO, we bridge the first of these gaps by bringing statisticians and computer scientists from the Factulty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences together, and the other by bringing in industry-heavy research centers such as BigInsight and SIRIUS. In this blog-post, I want to say something about why I believe SIRIUS has a very important role to play in the current and future data science engagement at the University of Oslo.
