Our world lives and depends on data. Graduates of UM-Flint’s concentration in data science gain the skills needed to analyze it and use it across an ever-expanding number of industries and occupations — including machine learning, artificial intelligence, and other leading-edge applications.
This program provides rigorous preparation in the mathematical principles underpinning data science. You will be able to apply your learning right away to build models, make predictions, and recommend actions based on data. You will also gain critical perspective about the types of problems that can be solved using data science methods.
Technological innovation increases the demand for data science occupations. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, statisticians, mathematicians, actuaries, and operations research analysts are among the thirty fastest-growing occupations through 2028 (and among the best paid). UM-Flint’s faculty experts help students develop the mindset and apply the technical know-how needed to take advantage of these opportunities.
