Data Science is the emerging field that manages and makes sense of data to solve important challenges in science, engineering, and society.

While a data science relies on technical skills from computing and mathematical modeling, the key to its success is the ability to choose among the techniques, interpret them, and connect them with the data domains.

Most of todays cutting edge work relies on the efficient and informed collection, management, and analysis of data. If you want to become a data scientist or work with one, the School of Computing offers several degree and certificate programs towards helping you learn the skills necessary to be at the center of these modern grand challenges.
