Every day all over the world, large amounts of data are generated by business, scientific and social activities. Data-driven approaches to decision making in areas as diverse as medicine, business, sports, advertising, and entertainment are now essential.
Data Science is the study, application, and development of methods to learn from this data. These are essential to understand, predict, and make improvements in management strategies, products, services, advertising campaigns, public health and safety, and many other areas. These methods combine elements of mathematics, computer science and statistics.
Students in this program will obtain significant “hands-on” experience through various projects and a Data Science Laboratory.
