      About the programme

      Data science is based primarily on the areas of informatics such as programming, data mining, artificial intelligence, and visualization. It is used in many application areas, such as business intelligence, the detection of anomalies in patterns of behaviour, analysis of services in cloud computing, and in bioinformatics and genetics.

      The focus of your studies

      The programme focuses on three main areas: intelligent data analysis, programming and decision support. You will study courses in artificial intelligence, data mining, programming and visual data analysis, finishing your studies with performing a thesis project.

      The University of Skövde has a strong research profile in informatics. This means that after graduation there are excellent opportunities for you to continue your studies and pursue a doctoral degree. All of the teachers in the programme have experience in data science research and the majority are working on ground-breaking projects so that students are exposed to the latest trends in this important and exciting area.

      Upon completion of your studies

      The career opportunities are almost endless. With a degree in Data Science, you can work, for example, as a data analyst, a software developer, or a technical specialist. There is an extensive and increasing demand, nationally and internationally, for data scientists who master this subject and who understand all the links in the chain of processing, analysing, and extracting knowledge from big data. Glassdoor has ranked Data Scientist as the no. 1 job in USA, and 5 of the top 10 US jobs are related to Analytics, Big Data, and Data Science
