The Data Science Programme was established in 2017. It is a cutting-edge cross-discipline programme that takes advantage of its internationally prepared teaching staff. UIC is one of the second batch of universities in China to offer this major. Data is the “new power” in information era; it is also the core of computation systems and artificial intelligence. In our Data Science Programme, students will first learn the fundamental knowledge of computer science and statistics before they get their hands “dirty” in the skill trainings related to the whole life circle of data, including data collection, organization, analysis, and visualization. By enforcing the “learning by doing” principle, our students will be able to understand and apply the knowledge and skills to solve real world problems. Soon enough they will be fully prepared to step in the fierce career competition and proceed with confidence in their path to the future.
