Overview

About Data Sciences

The Engineering Sciences - Data Science program of the University at Buffalo trains students in the emerging and high demand area of data and computing sciences. In fact, many surveys of employment have highlighted the great need for suitably trained professionals in these areas, estimating deficits of personnel availability in only the US at as high as 150,000 a year.

Students will be trained in sound basic theory with an emphasis on practical aspects of data, computing and analysis. Graduates will be able to serve the analytics needs of employers and will be exposed to several areas of application. The degree can be specialized using electives and a project. Classes will be modestly sized and emphasize best classroom practices while employing online resources to reinforce the classroom experience.

Students in this program will need some prior knowledge of mathematics, statistics and computing (commensurate with that from an engineering/natural science/math undergraduate program, see below for detail). The program can be completed in one calendar year of study.

The University at Buffalo has responded aggressively to these trends by first establishing a doctoral program in Computational and Data Sciences. UB has been a research pioneer in these areas and faculty have much expertise and decades of experience and assets like the world leading Center for Computational Research with unmatched facilities for big computing and data.
