About the Program

During the IT boom of the late 1990s and early 2000s, the focus was on the shift of offline business processes to automated computer systems. During these two decades there have been consistent streams of electronic content creation, transactional data generation, and data logs. This means that every organization is now sitting on a pile of data that they know can have rich value. From healthcare to politics to disaster management, data science is driving breakthroughs everywhere. Data helps businesses understand and improve their business processes, saving time and money. The aim of this program is to provide students with technical skills and practical knowledge in Data Science. The Data Science program combines theory and practice and is based on three major disciplines, Computer Science, Statistics and Mathematics, and real-world application areas. This program is designed to enable graduates to meet the demands of the data-driven economy of the future.

Education Opportunities

Students graduating from the Data Science program will develop relevant programming skills, demonstrate proficiency with statistical analysis of data, develop the ability to build and evaluate data-driven models, perform statistical analysis with professional statistical software, demonstrate skills in data management, and use data science concepts and methods to solve problems in real-world contexts and effectively communicate these solutions. The goal of the program is to provide students with the technical and analytical skills necessary to manage, analyze and make sense of data, and to equip them with the knowledge and skills necessary to take on innovative roles. The program will contribute to the gap in both the public and private sectors by training experts with up-to-date knowledge in the field of data science.


Career Areas

Data science-related careers are expected to have strong job opportunities. That means there is a greater demand for data scientists than there is supply, which is fantastic news for students and professionals in the field. As a result of this scarcity, you'll discover that a data science profession can take many different directions. A position in data science offers a variety of career possibilities in addition to being one of the most paid tech occupations. As data scientists advance in their careers, their options become increasingly numerous, and many senior data scientists are given with the decision of where they want to specialize. Some data scientists aspire to lead teams. Others opt to concentrate in a single field, such as marketing, or to focus on a specific skill, such as machine learning.
