Welcome to Master of Science in
Instituto Superior de Agronomia
Data Science in Agriculture, Food, Forest and Environment (Green Data Science)
Learn Data Science applied to Agriculture, Food, Forestry and Environment. Be in the digital transition...
The importance of training in data science has been highlighted for its role in the economy and society, improving data-driven decision support. Globally, the demand for data scientists is high, with insufficient supply for the needs of the labor market.
In the areas of application of this master's degree, there has been a growing adoption of technologies and practices based on the intensive use of data, in addition to what has already existed in some areas for years (e.g. environment).
The new master's degree Data Science in Agriculture, Food, Forest and Environment aims to enable, through theoretical and practical training, the application of Data Science to food production systems, environmental quality management and natural resources.
The reasons of Green Data Science
THE NECESSARY EVOLUTION
Agri-food and environmental sciences are multidimensional. Our ambition is to prepare professionals capable of dealing with this complexity through the application of Data Science.
PROOF OF FUTURE
The Green Data Science curriculum prepares digital transformation, enabling the use of large volumes of data in decision support.
IDEAL ENVIRONMENT: ISA
ISA is the largest and most qualified school in agricultural sciences in Portugal! The extensive experience and knowledge provides the ideal environment for applied data science learning.
