Bachelor of Science in Economics and Data Science

Single Degree

The newly launched Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Economics and Data Science programme combines expertise from 3 schools: School of Social Sciences (SSS), School of Computer Science and Engineering (SCSE), and School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences (SPMS). 
This is a four-year degree programme in which undergraduate students will read 3 subject areas in Economics, Mathematics and Data Science. The programme provides its students with a strong foundation in Economics and subsequently prepares them not only to handle and deal with big data through Data Science but also develops their ability to make economic sense from their applications in modern large-scale data analysis. 

Upon graduation, students are expecting to work as data analysts, data scientists, economists and industry analysts who are skillful in analyzing big data.​
