Solve Real-World Problems Through Data Information and Insight
The BS in Data Science program at UCF spans a variety of sub-disciplines within the greater field of data science to provide you with an opportunity to specialize in an area that aligns with your personal and professional goals. These include mathematics, statistics, specialized programming, algorithm design, and the fundamentals of uncovering, interpreting and communicating the business insights obtained from the data to help business to make informed decisions.
From tracking consumer behaviors to performing an analysis on trends, you’ll play a critical role in informing organizations about current operations and helping guide decision-making. Digest complex information to present and share with leadership about recommendations and effective strategies to move forward. Data scientists provide information that helps companies explore new opportunities that may have gone unnoticed before.
Throughout your coursework, you’ll have an opportunity to create, adapt and use state-of-the-art tools to obtain insight from large and unstructured data sets and convert them into knowledge. Plus, with the program’s heavy emphasis on physical and computational sciences, explore multiple disciplines and become well-versed in this growing field. Data science graduates work for a number of sectors nationally — like big tech — to local opportunities around the Central Florida corridor.
