The Data Science program from Duke Kunshan University deals with the theories, methodologies and tools of applying statistical concepts and computational techniques to various data analysis problems related to science, engineering, medicine, business, etc. 



The objective of the Data Science program from Duke Kunshan University is to inspect, clean, transform and model data in order to discover useful information, suggest conclusions and support decision-making. It is an emerging topic that plays a critical role in almost every discipline of today’s science and technology and has become an indispensable component.

Interdisciplinary data science is a highly interdisciplinary field. Its methodologies are mostly derived from statistics theories. The computational algorithms for implementing these statistical methodologies are based upon numerical computation and optimization, and are often executed on a large-scale hardware platform composed of massive computing units and storage devices. When applying data analysis to a specific application problem, it further requires disciplinary knowledge and expertise. To accomplish these ambitious goals, there is an immediate need to “invent” a radically new degree program that can break down the traditional boundaries between disciplines and, consequently, facilitate fundamental breakthroughs and innovations.
