Overview

The BSc in Data Science and Analytics at University College Cork provides an education in data storage, manipulation and interpretation using mathematical sciences and computational methods to solve complex real world problems.

In first and second year, students study the mathematical and computational foundations of data science and analytics.

In third year, students begin applying the fundamentals of data science and analytics to real life problems and data. That year is then completed with a six-month work placement (paid in most cases) providing an opportunity to apply the skills learnt in a work-place environment.

In fourth year, students choose specialised modules and undertake an independent project which enables them to investigate more applied elements of the discipline.
