The Computational Data Science (CDAS) programme, through the synergy of the strengths of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering and the Department of Statistics, focuses on the in-depth academic trainings in the domain of computational data science. It is designed to manufacture mathematical, technical and analytical skills to create solutions to lead data-driven decision making (This new programme to be introduced in 2022-23 is subject to confirmation of the University Senate).
It aims to equip students with the capabilities of applying both
Mission of the Programme
The three circles correspond to:
Data Collection, Data Modeling, Data Analysis
Special Feature of the Programme
Computer Science: data structures, algorithms, parallel programming, and distributed computing system
Statistics: sampling methods, statistical modelling, high-dimensional statistics, computer-intensive statistical inference-
X Component: machine learning, data mining and data visualization for data-driven decision making in a specialized field
Four specialized streams (i.e., the X component) that apply the core knowledge of computational data science to different science, engineering, and medicine disciplines are offered to students:
