BSc (Hons) Data Science

Short Description

The Bachelor of Science in Data Science programme aims to train students in the fundamental principles and practical applications of data science.  It emphasises a balanced coverage of subjects in computer science, artificial intelligence and statistics/mathematics resting on a liberal arts foundation.  It also focuses on applications in different fields in business, science, social science, and arts, aiming at developing students’ technical skill set (big data analytics, artificial intelligence, and data visualisation) and the mindset (intense curiosity, ability to hypothesise and storytelling with data).


Students will learn the scientific process in data collection, analysis and presentation.  They will learn how to apply the data science process and methods appropriately and creatively to solve problems in different domains.  Students will be able to effectively deliver the results and communicate with different stakeholders who have diverse backgrounds.
