    Entry Requirement

     

    Aims

    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.

    Professional exemption

    Recognitions of the courses offered in the revised curriculum of BSc(Hons) in Data Science (BSCHDSFS) 數據科學榮譽理學士 are currently under review. The former program BSc(Hons) in Statistical Analysis and Data Science (BSCHSADSF) acquired several external recognitions including:

    • Hong Kong Statistical Society — exemption from Graduate Diploma exams in Modules 1,3 and 4;

    • Continuing Education Fund (CEF) — Financial Services sector, four courses;

    • SAS Joint University certification — SAS programming and Data Mining; and

    • The Hong Kong Council for Accreditation of Academic and Vocational Qualifications (HKCAAVQ) — Level 5.

     
     
    Further studies

    Graduates will be qualified for postgraduate studies (MSc, MPhil, and PhD) in data science and related fields in any tertiary institutions in Hong Kong and overseas. MPhil and PhD positions in the department are also available.
