Bachelor of Engineering in Civil Engineering with Second Major in Data Analytics

Single Degree with 2nd Major

Today’s Civil Engineers contribute to the liveability and sustainability of our environment. The Second Major in Data Analytics equips Civil Engineering students with additional technical competency to integrate applications with data analytics.

With data becoming pervasive in the way we live, companies are investing in data analytics capabilities to keep up with developments and competition. However, data analytics tools are evolving at a rapid pace and there is a shortage of qualified data analysts and data scientists in the market today. To align students with emerging employment trends, the College of Science (CoS) and College of Engineering (CoE) jointly offer the Second Major in Data Analytics.

Civil Engineering students can take advantage of their technical knowledge and training in the civil domain to integrate applications in data analytics. This will expand their career options after graduation.
