Data Science is a systematic study of digital data using statistical techniques and applications of computer science. It comprises the science of planning for, acquisition, management, analysis of, and inference from data. Its goal is to make sense of vast amounts of dynamic data and extract information that will lead to new knowledge that can provide actionable insights for decision makers. In addition to advanced computer skills and in-depth knowledge of statistics, a data scientist must acquire domain knowledge to interpret data-driven insights.

Bachelor of Science Data Science (BSDS) program provides a synergistic approach to problem solving, one that leverages the content in all three disciplines; namely, Statistics, Computer Science and Mathematics. This will serve students well whether they join the marketplace or continue on to more advanced study. Skills gained will equip students for a wide variety of careers in IT and Data Analysis, across many industries whether in corporate, government or not-for-profit sectors.
