Nothing has changed our world so deeply in the past years as digitisation: new technologies today create possibilities that were completely unthinkable in the past. This process has revolutionized a wide variety or realms that include interpersonal communication, economic processes, and much more. Data Science lies at the basis of this revolution. These new approaches can be used to map, analyse, and make use of all sorts of information. The Bachelor's Degree Programme in Data Science at IU University ensures that you master the required theoretical problem-solving skills. As a well-trained data analysis expert, you will later develop practical solutions for both private and public economic sectors. 

In the IU Data Science Bachelor's Degree Programme, you will learn the most vital theoretical basics in the fields of data visualisation and analysis, machine learning, and software engineering. In addition, you will develop your own portfolio with selected work samples that document your data science solution competence. Furthermore, you can specialise in individual aspects such as autonomous driving or Smart Factory, with emphasis in both practical and advisory tasks as a data science expert. 

Information on accreditation and state approval can be found on the sub-page of the degree program.

Data Engineer

As a data engineer, you are responsible for all relevant processes relating to the generation, storage, maintenance, processing, and transfer of data. The design and monitoring of the hardware and software infrastructure are crucial. This includes the conception, purchasing, and set-up of all the necessary components that are required. As a data expert, you are also responsible for the security and stability of the entire system as well as compliance with data protection and data security regulations and policies.   

Digital Analytics Consultant

As an expert in data analytics, you know how to correctly evaluate the flood of digital information and data, regardless of the device. Your goal is to filter out the data that provides the customer with important information and figures so that they can derive trends and customer needs for their market. To achieve this, data must be collected, visualised, and correctly interpreted. That means strategic consulting is an important skill for a digital analytics consultant.
