Data driven inquiries play a role in a vast array of careers. The University of Arizona offers a spectrum of opportunities for undergraduates with interests in the Data Sciences. Students can choose a Data Science as both a major or a minor, complement their Data Science major with a minor or enhance their major with a Data Science minor.
Statistics & Data Science
Building the theoretical foundations in probability and statistics, design modern statistical approaches like machine learning to data driven questions through the interaction of theory and computation.
Technical aspect of programming - operating systems, systems software, algorithms, data visualization, designs for data storage and retrieval, challenges in cloud computing, its security and privacy.
Management Information Systems
Applying computer technology, quantitative techniques, and administrative skills to the information processing to manage computerized information systems to meet the needs of business organizations.
Systems and Industrial Engineering
Solving to engineering problems by integrating classical tools with modern data science, using optimization strategies and incorporating human factors to production systems analysis, logistics, and supply chain analysis.
Data Science in Your Future
Your ability to solve problems is enhanced by complementing your major with a data science minor.
