Short Description

City University of Hong Kong offers two brand-new and unique undergraduate programmes, BSc Data Science and BEng Data and Systems Engineering, which are designed to cultivate data scientists 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 rapid 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 scientist is trained to use and extract insights from these data and responsibly to apply to and solve real-world problems in the data realm.

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.

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