LEO Dr David P. Chan Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Data Science Programme

Data science is an emerging interdisciplinary field that integrates knowledge and skills from computer science, statistics/mathematics and artificial intelligence with critical and out-of-the box thinking to process big datasets with different formats from various sources.

Emphasises a balanced coverage of subjects in computer science, statistics/mathematics and artificial intelligence resting on a liberal arts foundation.

Focuses on applications in different fields in science, social science, arts and business.

The Major programme contains 13 required courses, including 3 computer science courses, 3 artificial intelligence courses, 6 statistics/mathematics courses and 1 capstone course.

  • Practitioners in the science, social science, arts and business domains will be invited to share their experience in applying the data science approaches to solving problems in their respective domains
  • The students also have to take at least 3 elective courses that are either application-oriented courses or advanced-level courses

The Department of Computing and Decision Sciences itself has conducted a market survey of practitioners in the IT, e-Business, education, banking and government sectors and a survey of potential students in different countries/regions. The survey results indicate good job prospects for future graduates and substantial demand for Data Science programmes.
