Data analytics applies fundamental scientific principles to the analysis of large, complex data sets. This rapidly growing field needs practitioners with expertise that cuts across core disciplines of computer science, mathematics and statistics, AND highly developed critical thinking, problem-solving and communication skills.

Data analytics is a uniquely interdisciplinary major with academic partnerships rarely found in other majors. Data analytics majors receive a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree from the College of Arts and Sciences through curricular partnerships with the College of Engineering, the College of Medicine, the College of Public Health and the Fisher College of Business.

The major is jointly administered by the Department of Computer Science and Engineering and the Department of Statistics.
