Data Science


The PhD in Computing Will Begin Admitting Students to the Data Science Emphasis in Fall 2019

Data Science is an interdisciplinary field concerned with the scientific methods, processes, and systems used to extract knowledge or insights from data in various forms, either structured or unstructured. Data Science combinines the fields of mathematics, statistics, information science, computer science, and other data-driven domains of scientific study. Like all sciences which require data to make scientific advancements, Data Science too advances with data, however more focus in Data Science is put on the nature of the data itself: data analytics, “Big Data,” (i.e., structured and unstructured), visualization, and computation; i.e., the creation of novel data-driven software for real-world applications.
