Germany, as everyone knows, is a great place for MS Data Science courses. Not just data science, any tech-oriented master's program is said to be best offered in Germany. The country is a hub of engineering, many computer science domains and a few other tech industries. The universities, earnings and other post-grad opportunities in Germany in data science are more than good.

It's a good decision to pursue an MS degree in data science from Germany. However, there is no pressure on you. Countries like the USA, UK and Canada are always available to get a data science degree. While each country is good in some manner, it is up to you to decide where you want to go. Since you asked about Germany, I'll explain it here.

First, one of the crucial things a student looks for in a master's degree abroad is return they get. I mean, what is the point of going abroad to study if you do not earn enough to pay back your debts and then build some finance. Data science, in particular, is a very lucrative field. Plus, the employment rates in data science in Germany have been growing over the last few years. So you are all set regarding data science job placement in Germany.

An average data scientist earns €55,721 (around 45 lakhs) annual salary in Germany. The numbers are estimated figures. Based on your expertise and experience, these figures can reach even higher. Now that you have seen how much you can earn, let's see universities that offer the best data science courses in the country.


  1. Technical University Munich
  2. Ludwig Maximilians Universität München
  3. University of Mannheim
  4. University of Magdeburg
  5. University of Hildesheim


These 5 universities in Germany are most well known for MS in data science programs. They have an excellent reputation around the country, with universities like TUM and the University of Mannheim being world-renowned. Choosing any of these universities for an MS in data science is a good decision. I suggest you start preparing as soon as possible. And if you need any help, ask for it.
