By enforcing the “learning by doing” principle within the Data Science (Hons) programme at Beijing Normal University - Hong Kong Baptist University United International College, our student 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.

The Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Data Science is a four-year full-time degree programme, with considerable departure from traditional single discipline programmes. In addition to the courses of the main discipline, students are required to take supporting, interdisciplinary, general education courses and the whole person education experiential learning modules of their own choice. In the final year of study, students are required to complete individual or group research projects (depending on the nature), in which they can gain in-depth knowledge, develop basic research techniques, and experience during the course of thesis preparation.
