The newly launched Bachelor of Science (Honours) in
Economics and Data Science programme combines expertise from 3 schools:
School of Social Sciences (SSS), School of Computer Science and Engineering
(SCSE), and School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences (SPMS).
This is a
four-year degree programme in which undergraduate students will read 3 subject
areas in Economics, Mathematics and Data Science. The programme provides its
students with a strong foundation in Economics and subsequently prepares them
not only to handle and deal with big data through Data Science but also
develops their ability to make economic sense from their applications in modern
large-scale data analysis.
Upon graduation, students are expecting to work as
data analysts, data scientists, economists and industry analysts who are
skillful in analyzing big data.
