Bachelor of Science in Statistics with Specialization in Data Analytics
The BS Statistics with specialization in Data Science is designed to provide students with the necessary knowledge and skills to practice statistics both in the academe and in applied fields. The curriculum is enriched with computer and IT-based courses specifically designed for students to be sufficiently equipped to manage and analyze big data. The program has three major components, namely:
(i) Statistics - to ensure that graduates of the program are provided with the needed competencies for careers in statistics and applied fields;
(ii) Data Science - to provide further analytical skills for students to gain competitive edge in exploiting big data that are becoming more and more explosive with the advent of technology; and
(iii) Computer Science - to enhance and develop the domain knowledge of students and eventually gain the requisite expertise to pursue careers in data science.
To ensure that students are adequate in these three areas, they are required to undertake capstone project through an internship program to identified industries.
