Data Science For All Disciplines

Data Science has been called “the sexiest job of the 21st century.”  Founded on computer science, mathematics, statistics, and optimization techniques, data scientists add deep content knowledge in specialized applications such as communications, architecture, and marine sciences. Training data scientists requires an interdisciplinary approach that ensures that the students are able to take up the role of data scientist in any organization.

Many large companies today have data science departments. Data scientists who can not only perform various data analysis techniques but also are able to interpret the results by drawing on their domain knowledge into actionable items are in high demand, as executives seek talented individuals capable of unlocking the hidden value in big data to garner strategic insights and business results. The challenges of modern data science require data scientists to possess strong training in both data analysis technologies and also domain specific issues.
