We’re excited to present the new WSU bachelor of science degree in data analytics!
The rigorous core curriculum requires substantial training in computer science and statistics with an emphasis on experiential learning using real industry datasets and problems, expanding teamwork skills, and developing fluency in communication.
In addition to receiving core data analytics instruction, students will specialize in one of eight domain tracks. Specialization will enable students to fill a critical need for employees who can speak the languages of both data science and industry.
Our goal is to develop talented data analysts who can meet the workforce needs of companies and organizations across the Pacific Northwest and beyond: from advanced manufacturing to e-commerce, software development to forest products, policy development to sports analysis.
The broad support for the data analytics degree at Washington State University is unprecedented. Offered jointly by the Department of Mathematics and Statistics in the College of Arts and Sciences and the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science in the Voiland College of Engineering and Architecture, the program includes substantial contributions from faculty in the the Carson College of Business, the College of Agricultural, Human and Natural Resource Sciences, and the College of Education.
The degree is currently available on the Pullman and Everett campuses, with a online delivery through the WSU Global Campus planned for the fall of 2017.
This is an exhilarating time for students who possess strong computational and mathematical skills and enjoy playing with data! If you are interested in the WSU data analytics degree, please review the requirements for the major and discuss your interests with our academic advisors.
Please also feel free to send me an email with questions about any aspect of the program.
