Congratulations to the First Cohort of MSc DDM Graduates: Meeting the Worldwide Demand for Data-Driven Modeling Skills
Congratulations to the first cohort of 47 graduates from the MSc Program in Data-Driven Modeling (MSc-DDM)!
The MSc-DDM program is jointly offered by the Departments of Physics and Mathematics. The program was designed to meet the pressing demand in today’s world for human resources in the areas of data-driven modeling, including hardware, software, services, infrastructure, information, and digital business. Prof. Michael Wong, who is the founding Program Director, states that the design of the MSc DDM program “bridges the gaps between theory, practice, and techniques.”
Admission to the program is very selective, having attracted interest of hundreds of applicants with strengths in mathematics, statistics and engineering. Our graduates are in high demand, with a 100% placement rate in several sectors in Hong Kong, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Shanghai, and London. The training they received in the MSc-DDM program prepared them to excel in positions with titles such as Algorithm Engineer, Administrative Officer, Data Analyst, Product Manager, Programmer and Risk Management.
This year, MSc-DDM is selected by the University Grants Council to be part of the Targeted TPG Programmes Fellowships Scheme to nurture more talents to pursue further studies in priority areas conducive to the development of Hong Kong. Local students, both full-time and part-time, who are admitted to the MSc-DDM program in the 2021-22 intake are eligible to apply to the Fellowship Scheme. Part of the tuition fees will be subsidized by the fellowships subject to a cap of HK$120,000 for successful students.
