Short Description

City University of Hong Kong offers two unique undergraduate programmes, BSc Data Science and BSc Data and Systems Engineering, which are designed to cultivate data science professionals capable of applying and creating the data science knowledge required to support social and economic development in Hong Kong and beyond. Data science, as a rapidly growing field, focuses on solving problems and furthering social progress using vast amounts of data collected in various industries, commerce and applied sciences. A data science professional is trained to use and extract insights from these data,  apply to and solve real-world problems in the data realm responsibly.

BSc Data Science cultivates data scientists and data science professionals with rigorous theoretical and methodological knowledge of data science along with in-depth analysis and evaluation for applied problems.

BSc Data and Systems Engineering cultivates data scientists and advanced data engineers with a solid understanding of the tools and techniques, with a focus on managing data and applying data science techniques to solve social and economic problems.
