The Graduate School of Data Science aims to develop and produce data scientists with advanced skills and practical skills that can bring innovation to society by analyzing and utilizing data using advanced technologies such as IoT and AI for Society 5.0. In particular, as a comprehensive university with a medical school, we will work to develop practical human resources who can make policy decisions based on data in the health fields such as prevention, medical care, and nursing care, based on cross-disciplinary research capabilities in multiple fields.

 

Message from the Dean

The Graduate School of Data Science, which is scheduled to be established in April 2020, will consist of the following two major departments, and aims to develop advanced data science professionals who will be responsible for the future “Super Smart Society” and contribute to society.


The Data Science Major aims to clarify social issues that should be solved by the power of data science in collaboration with practitioners who face them – mainly for undergraduate graduates and working adults – and collect and analyze data and conduct new analysis. Through project-based learning (PBL), students learn a series of processes that contribute to the real world through the development of methods.


The Health Data Science Major offers the only education system unique to Yokohama City University that connects both a data science department and a medical school in Japan. Students will learn about the PDCA cycle, which leads to the resolution of various health issues, which are one of the biggest concerns of the public, using data science methods, mainly for specialized human resources who support health (prevention, medical care, and nursing care) sites, including medical professionals.


We aim to create a society where members, including faculty members and students of the Graduate School, can enjoy the benefits of data science.
