Data Scientist: a job profile with a future
The volume of available data has grown strongly since the beginning of the digital age. Data will increasingly become indispensable to overcome the numerous challenges of the future: in the healthcare sector, data pave the way for new treatment and diagnosis methods; the production sector is working on preventive maintenance technologies that make it possible to service machines before a defect occurs. Data science is used in the development of new products and in marketing in order to cater to the needs of the customers even better.
As one of the first bachelor degree programmes in the field of Data Science and Business Analytics, this practice-oriented study programme teaches its students how to convert data into a valuable resource in order to allow for data-backed decision-making and new innovations.
Internet of Things
Data science is already pervasive in everyday life such as personalised film and series recommendations for customers on video-streaming platforms. It can also be found in the form of smart voice-activated assistants, which have been revolutionised by the internet of things and we increasingly encounter in apartments or houses.
Digitalisation, big data & artificial intelligence
The growth in the amount of data that accompanies the digitalisation of all areas of work and life also increases curiosity about the hidden knowledge in the data. Data science allows one to process this enormous amount of unstructured data and thereby to answer questions.
