insearch Posted April 8, 2014 Share Posted April 8, 2014 So I am trying to decide between UC Santa Barbara's MA Stats program and UC Santa Cruz's MS Stas and Applied Math program . The cost of tuition between the two programs is pretty much the same. My main interest is applied stats and machine learning, and would like to work in industry afterwords, specifically in the data science field. Currently I am leaning towards Santa Cruz, since it is close to the Silicon Valley, and the program is within the engineering school which seems to allow for a more interdisciplinary curriculum. Santa Cruz also has a technology and information management department within the eng school, which has some interesting courses I might want to check out. UC Santa Barbara's stat department does seem to be ranked higher than Santa Cruz though. I would greatly appreciate some advice and input before I made my final decision. Thanks.
