Your Data Science degree at the IU International University of Applied Sciences (IU) will turn you into exactly such a data analysis professional. Equipped with the necessary skills to solve problems theoretically, you will also be able to evaluate this data correctly in practice - and use it consistently for new solutions. No matter when, no matter where. Data Science is therefore the core science of all digitalisation processes. And crucial for successful business models in the digital world.

Why you should study Data Science

As an academic, you have very high chances of working in better-paid positions, you are more secure and you are more flexible in planning your career. A degree provides you with skills that will prepare you for a successful career and give you better career opportunities. Sometimes, only a degree course can lead to a certain profession, and it provides you with technical skills that are useful for your future profession. Apart from that, people with a degree are less affected by unemployment. 

This is what your Data Science studies at the IU look like

In the bachelor's degree programme Data Science, you will learn the most important theoretical basics in the areas of Data Visualisation and Analysis, Machine Learning and Software Engineering. You learn everything about business intelligence such as cloud computing and big data technologies. You can also specialise in individual areas, such as autonomous driving or smart factory. And your acquired knowledge? You can put it into practice right away. In your Data Science degree programme, there are five portfolio courses that document your data science problem-solving skills on the basis of projects. Personally presented by you, of course. 

Future prospects: What you will do after your studies

With Big Data you have several career opportunities. After your studies, you can perform practical as well as advisory tasks. You interpret and canalise the very large amounts of data. Your Bachelor's degree at the IU will make you indispensable, e.g. as a Data Scientist, Data Engineer or Data Analytics Consultant. Thereby, all relevant processes around the generation, storage, maintenance, preparation and transfer of data are part of your daily business.
