This MSc in Network Intelligence and Data Science (NIDS) is home for creative problem-solvers who want to use data strategically to advance ITC society. We're cultivating a new type of quantitative thought leader who uses computational strategies to generate innovation and insights.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) approaches, well known from IT disciplines, are beginning to emerge in the networking domain. These approaches can be clustered into AI/ML techniques for network management; network design for AI/ML applications and system aspects. Recently, networking has become the focus of a huge transformation enabled by new models resulting from virtualization and cloud computing. This has led to a number of novel architectures supported by emerging technologies such as Software-Defined Networking (SDN), Network Function Virtualization (NFV) and more recently, edge cloud and fog.

NIDS combines rigorous technical training with field knowledge, industry insights and repeated practice in critical thinking, teamwork, communication, and collaborative leadership to generate data scientists with a deep understanding of telco/webcos evolutions and who can add value to any technical field. The program covers areas such as network intelligence, automation, communication services, large-scale data analytics, advanced machine learning and data-mining, information retrieval, natural language processing and web mining. It also includes foundational modules on topics such as programming for data analytics, Internet of thing, networks, services and optimisation.

TThe program brings students up-to-date in state-of-the-art technologies which are changing the way we work and interact in an increasingly interconnected world. The program is deliberately broad based to provide a balanced view of the state-of-the-art for maximum flexibility.
