Bachelor of Science with Honours in Data Science 數據科學榮譽理學士

BSc (Hons) Data Science

Short Description

Data science is multi-disciplinary as it draws upon techniques and knowledge in various disciplines. Our curriculum is uniquely designed in the way that courses are integrated from statistics, computing, mathematics and economics disciplines. Graduate project experience forms an integral part of the degree. Students of the same group are expected to develop a practical solution for a real-life problem in their graduate projects where in-depth and specialized domain knowledge will be exchanged among students, professors, and domain experts.

Graduates will be ready for entry-level roles of data scientists, data engineers, and data analysts in commercial firms and public institutions.
