About our programs
The Data Science, Analytics and Engineering graduate programs are a set of interdisciplinary master’s degrees that are housed in different schools within the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering. Students should apply to the concentration that best fits their background in order to ensure proper academic preparation and success.
They say data is the new oil; the ASU DSAE graduate program will enable our students to extract, process, and manage this new resource and gain a wealth of knowledge in data science.Rong PanGraduate Program Chair
