Educational goals and objectives

DATA SCIENCE
Data Science is an interdisciplinary field of study established in recent years in order to offer the methodological tools and technologies useful for the management and analysis of big data and their exploitation in industry, services, and research. The phenomenon of big data has revolutionized countless sectors of economic and social activity and has profoundly changed research methodologies and technologies in numerous scientific disciplines and applications of great economic and social value. The main objective of the PhD in Data Science is therefore the development of research projects on the fundamental methodological aspects of Data Science (machine learning, statistical and computational analysis of data, management of big data) and on the use of big data in following fields of application:

i) Advanced digital platforms,
ii) Management of urban spaces and environmental resources
iii) Medicine and Health
iv) Economic and Social Analysis.

Data Science receives the decisive contribution of computer science, statistics, engineering, applied mathematics, and academic disciplines that help understand the impact of big data on applications. The Scientific Disciplinary Sectors of the core disciplines of Data Science and of the disciplines related to the fields of application are extensively represented in the Board of Faculties of the Doctoral Program in Data

Admission Procedure

Qualifications assessment The Admission Committee assigns to
each candidate a maximum score
of 60 points. Scores are assigned
according to the evaluation criteria
defined by the Board of Faculty of the
Ph.D. Program, and reported below:
- up to 30 points for the evaluation of the
curriculum (including the academic
career and any other qualifications), the
letters of recommendations supporting
the candidate and the publications
presented by the candidate;
- up to 30 points for the research
proposal submitted by the candidate. In
particular, the commission evaluates the
description of the state of the art, the
originality and
the innovative nature of the proposal,
the clarity and completeness of the
objectives, the
methodologies and the potential results,
