Practical training involves performing certain types of work related to students' future professional activities. It helps students develop practical skills and competencies in their chosen field of study. All students are required to complete the mandatory elements of the Master of Data Science such as Practical work and Final thesis in accordance with HSE University rules.
Exam on Practical work and Final Thesis may include a written report or an oral presentation, which summarise experience gained during practical tasks, highlights key points, and illustrates the skills they have acquired.
Master on Data Science does not organise any form of internships, but it will support the students by writing a reference for the internship of their choosing
Practical work on the 'Master of Data Science' Master's Programme may result in:
- implementation of a research project on the subject of a future thesis
- preparation of a scientific publication on a topic related to the final qualifying work
- work on other research tasks in agreement with the scientific advisor or academic advisor
Practical work itself is a first step in writing the Final thesis as it is supervised by the same professor and often done on the very same topic.
Practical work on Master of Data Science is regulated by
It is recommended to look through the Practice's plan first
Final thesis is a mandatory element of the educational program, a final paper in which the student demonstrates what was learned during the course of the Master's programme.
Final Thesis preparation and presentation in the HSE University are regulated according to
- Regulations on Final State Certification of Students in Bachelor’s, Specialist and Master’s Programmes at National Research University Higher School of Economics
- Guidelines for the preparation of the Final thesis
Final Thesis presentation is recorded.
Among the requirements for students for the preparation of the Thesis are:
- Finding a supervisor and choosing a topic for research within the specialization "Master in Applied Mathematics and Informatics"
- Fulfillment of the objectives of the WRC on time and in accordance with general requirements
- The final version of the WRC must be uploaded to the LMS on time (the instruction to do itInstruction )
During preparation for the Thesis, you as a student may:
- Find an academic advisor on your own (including someone from outside the Higher School of Economics) and propose your own topic within the "Master in Applied Mathematics and Informatics" specialization
- At any time, change the topic or the wording of your Final Thesis, but not not later than one calendar month before the deadline for submission of the final version. It should be re-considered together with a supervisor and then an application should be send to the Study office.
- Base the current Thesis on conclusions or considerations of a previously started research (Scientific publications, term papers, etc.). The supervisor should help to make the final conclusion about the possibility of using previous paper while writing the Thesis
