Bachelor of Science (B. Sc.) - Data Science
The B. Sc. in Data Science is an exciting programme that aims to build a broad foundation in mathematics, statistics, and computer science among students, through which they can learn a wide variety of analytics applications in Science, Engineering, Technology, and the Arts (SETA). The programme is application-focussed so that as students learn about mathematical, statistical, and computational tools and techniques, they continuously get to apply their learnings in a wide variety of domains.
The programme aims to attract hard-working and aspiring students who have the curiosity to learn new mathematical, statistical, and computational techniques, the ability to envisage and develop analytics solutions, the ability to extract insights from the analytic models, and the ability to communicate and collaborate with domain experts to improve/optimize systems. The subjects that students take include traditional branches of mathematics and statistics such as algebra, analysis, differential equations, descriptive statistics, inferential statistics, and R and Python programming, but also several cutting-edge offerings such as visual analytics, descriptive analytics, predictive analytics, prescriptive analytics, machine learning, deep learning, and artificial intelligence.
The programme aims to mold the students to become data science leaders of the future, to be able to creatively apply mathematical, statistical, and computational approaches to solve complex and challenging problems in Science, Engineering, Technology, and the Arts.
