Apply Now! (extended)

Data Science and Engineering are multidisciplinary fields that apply tools and methods from computer science and statistics to other knowledge domains. This is all to make predictions, decisions, and derive insights from both structured and unstructured data. The Data Science and Engineering (DSE) program at CCNY provides a solid foundation in core data science and engineering skills, which allows students to analyze, process, visualize, and apply machine learning and computational statistics to problems in engineering, science, and other disciplines.

The DSE Master's program is targeted at students who wish to learn data science methodology and have a background in science, engineering, or mathematics.  The core data science methodology covered in the DSE program will provide students with fundamental data science and engineering computational and statistical skills. Students will apply these skills to a domain by combining core knowledge with domain knowledge acquired through two or more electives taken in that domain. Finally, students will complete a mandated capstone project or thesis demonstrating their mastery of the methodology.


  • Please note that we will not be accepting applications for the Spring 2021 semester. The next cohort will be fall 2020 and after that fall 2021.
  • No non-degree students.

Update May 6th, 2020:

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, our application evaluations were delayed until recently. Decisions have been made on all applications received before mid-April you should hear word by beginning of next week. We are sorry for the delay.

While we did meet our initial target acceptance for a full cohort, we may be able to accept a few more students for Fall 2020. Again due to the current crisis we will consider applications filed before July 1st., 2020. It is important to note that your transcript should indicate which courses are your 3 semesters of calculus, your prob/stat course, linear algebra, and programming language course. Also your GPA MUST be above a 3.0 and you should be clearly indicated and you should have high grades in these core courses. You also must be a STEM major. We reserve the right to not consider any application that does not meet the admission requirements. If any part of your record is ambiguous, please clarify in your application to avoid your application being denied due to this confusion. See admission link below for details.

Applications Fall 2020 Extended to July 1st for exceptional candidates.

If you miss the July deadline the next deadline is January 31st, 2021 for fall 2021, again there are NO Spring addmissions!
