Data Science

Master the scientific method to put massive data sets to work.


A TCU data science class in progress

There is not a single industry today that does not depend on data.

Data science has become the new fuel for industries, academia, and governments: from e-commerce to banking and finance, manufacturing and energy to health care and transportation, national security to space exploration. 

As a data science major, you’ll have opportunities to learn the necessary knowledge, methodologies, and state of the art skills to tackle real-world data analysis problems.
