COMPUTER & DATA SCIENCE

Become a Data Guru

The Bachelor of Science (BS) STEM major in Computer and Data Science prepares students to apply an understanding of computer platforms and systems, human-machine interactions, and IT operations, as well as gain quantitative proficiency in data gathering, data analytics, and insight generation to tackle organizational and societal problems effectively and creatively.

Providing students with solid foundation in research methods, mathematics for statistics, visualization techniques, and the latest methods in machine learning and big data wrangling, this major is for analytically-inclined students who are interested in starting careers as IT product and project managers, researchers, data scientists, or simply in applying quantitative learning to solve real world problems in any career setting. The major is at its core interdisciplinary in the fact that it combines courses from computer science, social science, statistics, and business to prepare students to enter a technology-intensive and data-rich world in need of creative and critical thinking.

This major lays the foundations of learning programming languages such as R, Python, and SQL while students expand their potential to make new and exciting contributions, communicate their results, and tell stories with data that are convincing to experts and non-experts alike.
