In Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada, Thompson Rivers University was founded in 1970 as a public teaching and research institution. It stands out as one of British Columbia's top research institutions. TRU is a top choice in Canada for international students due to the extensive range of academic opportunities offered to its students. More than 3,500 international students from more than 100 different countries are enrolled here. TRU Canada offers more than 140 on-campus programs and more than 60 open learning programs in the areas like Business, Arts, Computer Science, Law, Nursing, Sciences, etc. TRU offers degrees like master’s, graduate certificates, bachelor’s degrees, certificates, and diplomas, post-baccalaureate diplomas, associate degrees, Juris Doctor, etc.


Students like the university's broad range of academic offerings, tailored support, and hands-on learning opportunities. Learners are supervised by knowledgeable instructors who provide a flexible, inventive, and creative learning environment.In the interior of British Columbia, within the Secwepemc peoples' traditional territory, are the campuses in Kamloops and Williams Lake. The region around Kamloops is incredibly beautiful, with hiking trails, ski runs, rivers, wildlife, and a rich cultural history. From Vancouver, the trip takes about three and a half hours.

Our globe now possesses an astronomical amount of data. Demand for qualified scientists and analysts who can make data-driven decisions has increased along with it.

To address analytically challenging data problems, data scientists employ mathematical, computational, statistical, and algorithmic tools. Utilizing cutting-edge methods and algorithms, you will conduct research and apply data science practically while taking our Master of Science in Data Science (MScDS) course. In order to get ready for any scenarios you may face at work and in the real world, you will practice on models of real-life, existent problems.

Our program draws on the capabilities already present in the Computing Science Department, the Centre for Optimization and Decision Science at TRU, and the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at TRU, as well as the collaboration with other departments across campus and industry.

When the program is over, you'll be able to: 

Utilize tools for cleaning, sampling, managing, and conducting exploratory analyses of data.

Utilize high-dimensional data visualization techniques to spot trends and patterns in data sets.

Implement key data computation ideas, including data structures, algorithms, simulation, and analysis.

Integrate methods from applied statistics, data mining, mathematical modeling, optimization, and machine learning to model large amounts of data into a framework that can be used for future data analysis.

Apply cutting-edge algorithms and methods to large data sets to uncover important insights.

Create an analytical plan to simulate a future problem and use both public and private data sources to identify knowledge-based solutions for practical problems.

Effectively (verbally and visually) present data analysis results to a large audience.
