Advice on which subjects to choose during Ph.D. curriculam?


I’m currently doing a PhD and in this semester I should choose 2 subjects out of the following 3:

  1. Database management
  2. Parallel programming
  3. Data compression.

Which of these would be better for a career in Data Science?


I would advice to take the first two - Database management and parallel programming.

Not entirely sure what would be taught in data compression. If you can tell more details about the topics which will be covered, I might give you a better answer
