Partnering with industry provides opportunities to engage with real-world problems and data sets. You will learn to program, to study mathematics and learn to apply that learning to data from the real world, communicating the results to different audiences.
This is the course for you if you are a curious investigator, a story-teller, or a problem solver. Data drives the world we live in, and a Data Scientist's job is to use computers to organise everything we know about the world, and communicate the importance to other people. The DCU BSc in Data Science is for everyone who has a curiosity about the world around us, and wants a role that helps advise key decision makers in enterprise, government, and society. No prior computing experience is needed: we will take you from novice, or hobbyist to programming professional.
