BS Data Science

Program Introduction


It is widely believed that the 21st Century is the era of information and data. Information is generated from the collection and analysis of data. Large amounts of data in today’s world is readily available. Simple handheld devices have the ability to store Gigabytes of data. As the size of data is increasing, so is the need to process this huge amount of data to form information. Devices and applications are getting smarter such that they are able to interpret information from data on its own. Data scientists are equipped with tools and technique which enables them to extract information from data and provide a decisive outcome.

The School of Systems and Technology (SST) at UMT offers a four-year BS Data Science degree. The program essentially puts an emphasis on data science from a computing perspective. It has been designed to equip the students with cutting edge knowledge to foster the evolving need of computer technologies demanding smart and versatile use of data. In addition, the program helps the students’ progress on broad computer science principles. The degree is suitable for students interested in career industry and for the students who wish to pursue more specialized education. The program will help students to enhance their studies through variety of available innovative coursework.

Computer and software industries are now investing billions of dollar in data science in an effort to push the technology into the next step of smartness and computational intelligence. Industries are transforming rapidly due to the changing technologies such as finance, retail and media which are just few examples of industries that have transformed by computing and wide availability of data. Currently, software industry is in a human resource crunch when it comes to expertise in the field of Data Science. The degree provides opportunities in different computing and data science fields.
