Short DescriptionUpdated

The Computational Data Science (CDASN) programme is designed to manufacture mathematical, technical, and analytical skills to create solutions to lead data-driven decision-making. Data scientists build intelligent systems to understand, interpret, manage and derive key knowledge from big data sets. It aims to equip students with the latest in large-scale data processing, computational statistics, machine learning, data mining, and data visualisation, while also developing the skills to effectively communicate data insights to key stakeholders, etc. Such capabilities enable students to develop cutting-edge massive data analytics and management solutions that are of practical interest to academics, industry, and society.
