Programme Overview

Data Science is the study of information - where it comes from, what it tells us and how to turn it into a resource for business, government and social strategies. Data can be used to examine performance in key areas of a company, such as sales and marketing, operations, customer services and security, highlighting what’s most and least effective, and driving change based on evidence, rather than gut instinct.

About this Course

This honours degree will equip students with the skills to apply computing and analytical science in the pursuit of discovering new information by identifying patterns in data.

The course is practical in nature, providing you with knowledge of the way data science can solve real problems and facilitate business decisions based on evidence. It also incorporates work placement in a company, which will significantly improve your skills and enhance your employability. Due to the shortage of suitably qualified data science professionals in Ireland and internationally, this degree offers exceptional job prospects for graduates.

As a graduate of this course you will be able to:

  • Understand how data can be valuable and can help solve business problems and facilitate business decisions.
  • Apply data transformation, modelling, mining and machine learning techniques to analyse and derive new knowledge and insight from data.
  • Design and implement data science algorithms and applications that solve real-world problems.
  • Effectively visualise and communicate the results of data analysis to support business decision-making.
  • Adopt appropriate professional, ethical, legal, security and privacy principles in the construction and implementation of data science solutions.

Career Prospects

Graduates from the BSc (Honours) in Data Science will complete a six-month work placement in industry and on graduation can go on to work with a variety of organisations including multinationals, financial services and professional services companies. Related data science roles include data scientist, business intelligence analyst, customer insight lead, risk analyst, knowledge engineer, and data programmer.

Further Study Options

Upon successful completion of the BSc (Honours) in Data Science, graduates can progress to postgraduate courses in computing at level 9 on the National Framework of Qualifications such as the MSc in Data Analytics, MSc in Cybersecurity, MSc in Cloud Computing or the MSc in Fintech at National College of Ireland.

Course Structure and Award

This undergraduate course is a four-year honours degree. The course is run over eight semesters with continuous assessment held throughout and examinations at the end of each semester.

On completion you will receive a QQI BSc (Honours) Degree in Data Science at level 8 on the National Framework of Qualifications. The course also prepares students for industry-recognised certification in leading technologies.
