New French-Spanish master in Machine Learning and Data Mining

Given their complementary expertise in the fields of Machine Learning and Data Mining, the University of Saint-Etienne (France) and the University of Alicante (Spain) offer a new two-year Master’s program, called MLDM.

MLDM relies on the «Web Intelligence» Master’s carried out by the UJM (Faculté des Sciences et Techniques) and the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Mines de Saint-Etienne (French side), and the Master’s «Tecnologías de la Informática» of the University of Alicante (Spanish side).

The Master MLDM, which will start on September 2013, is based on the strong scientific collaborations established for many years between the Hubert Curien Laboratory and the Department of Software and Computing Systems, especially in the context of European networks of excellence.

MLDM will provide courses on pattern recognition, machine learning, modeling, knowledge extraction, and data mining and all the basis necessary to understand these topics. These issues have a strong potential for job placement of students in the field of modeling, prediction or decision support, as well as in the area of the Web, image and video processing, health informatics, computer music, robotics, etc.

Courses will be taught in English and are structured according to the European Credit Transfer System with 120 credits over four semesters of full-time studies.

Applicants with at least a BSc degree level (180 ECTS) or equivalent, in computer science, statistics, mathematics or equivalent are invited.
