JSSU70 - BSc(Hons) in Data Science & Artificial Intelligence (BSCHDSAIJ1) 數據科學及人工智能榮譽理學士, offered in 2020-2021 cohort

More and more information are available in the digital society nowadays and new generations should be able to comprehend and utilize them to solve practical problems. Our curriculum does not focus on teaching ‘abstract’ theories but emphasizing in enabling the student’s capability to deliver a complete package of solution to practical problems.

Data science and AI are interdisciplinary as they draw on various disciplines, such as Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science. Machine Learning is the core of data science and AI. It employs computer algorithms to interpret data and learn from the results for decision making and forecasting. Data science and AI can push forward business development, optimize business and operations, and create more attractive operating models. Data sources may come from tables, relational databases, texts, videos, audios, images, etc. Data scientists / AI specialists use data science methods, deep learning, machine learning and AI to discover clients, products, services, operations and market insights.

Graduates will be ready for entry-level roles of data scientists, AI specialist, data engineers, and data analysts in commercial firms and public institutions. To achieve this goal, the program aims to equip our graduates with four main competitive edges.
