AIMS & OBJECTIVES

The importance of data in problem-solving, decision-making, and strategy has gained prominence over the last decade. We live in a world of big data. Many of our everyday actions, from watching videos on our phones to purchasing a product online create data. Since the advent of the technological revolution, data has played an increasingly important role in many fields and spheres of life. That’s why interpreting and understanding data has become such a valuable skill. Data science is the study and examination of data with the purpose of understanding patterns. It uses tools, techniques, and theories to produce a meaningful interpretation of data for decision-making and development. It is an interdisciplinary field of study that uses scientific methods, programming skills, and knowledge of mathematics and statistics to extract insight from data. Degrees in this field allow a diverse range of specializations and occupations.
