    Entry Requirement



    Data science is multi-disciplinary subject that draws upon techniques and knowledge across various fields. Our curriculum is uniquely designed to integrate courses from the statistics, computing, mathematics and economics disciplines. The graduate project experience forms an integral part of the degree. Students, in groups, are expected to develop a practical solution to a real-life problem in their graduate projects where in-depth and specialized domain knowledge will be exchanged among students, professors and domain experts.

    Graduates will be ready for entry-level roles as data scientists, data engineers and data analysts in commercial firms and public institutions.
