Data Analytics and Systems Engineering are combined in this Bachelor of Science degree. At first glance, these two fields may seem unrelated, but it turns out that they are closely related.
- Data Analytics describes how to analyze complex data to reach actionable conclusions.
- Systems Engineering describes how engineers conceive, design, integrate, and test complex systems.
The self-driving vehicle also represents a data analytics problem as the data from the sensors must be analyzed to, for example, detect hazards and navigate in differing weather, during the day and at night, and in urban and non-urban environments.
• Can a social robot interact with a child to diagnose and treat autism or other learning disorders?
• How does a space vehicle company meet hundreds of requirements such as range, payload, and maintainability? It is not luck – learn how companies manage the development of technology to engineer complex systems
• What is “big data” and what is it used for?
• How can statistics and probability be applied to problems that do not have a clear answer?
• What is “risk?” Can we manage risk? If so, how?
The Bachelor of Science in Data Analytics and Systems Engineering will prepare you to answer these questions and engineer systems that satisfy user needs. Create systems and solve difficult problems.
