BS (Data Science) has a dual emphasis on basic principles of statistics and computer science, with foundational training in statistical and mathematical aspects of data analysis. This program, in addition, develops foundation on broad computer science principles, including algorithms, data structures, data management and machine learning. The program is suitable for students interested in either a career in industry or who wish to pursue more specialized graduate study. This program will prepare students for a career in data analysis, combining foundational statistical concepts with computational principles from computer science. A major component of this degree is the final year two-semester project, that teaches students how to apply statistical and computational principles to solve large-scale, real-world data analysis problems. BS (Data Science) is a four year degree program. It requires completion of 144 credit hours of course work and 2 credit hours of internship of at least six weeks at an organization approved by the Institute.
