Program Description

Data-driven decision making has become an industry standard, creating unprecedented demand for data-oriented professionals to analyze patterns and models for all kinds of data, with applications ranging from scientific discovery to business intelligence and analytics. The first undergraduate degree of its kind in Canada, our Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Data Science addresses the data-related needs of modern business industries. The information explosion of the modern age has resulted in extremely large data sets and a need to understand how to analyze and make sense of big data. Advances in hardware, software and statistical techniques are giving rise to automated methods to analyze patterns and models for all kinds of data, with applications ranging from scientific discovery to business intelligence and analytics.
