The School of Computer Science and Applications at REVA UNIVERSITY is offering a Master of Science in Data Science (M.Sc.) – a two-year postgraduate programme. Data Science is a multidisciplinary field that utilizes scientific inference and mathematical algorithms to extricate important insights from a lot of structured and unstructured data. The aim of this programme is to produce postgraduates with advanced knowledge and understanding of Data Science; higher order critical, analytical, problem-solving, and transferable skills; ability to think rigorously and independently to meet higher level expectations of the ICT industry, academics, and research establishments or take up the entrepreneurial route. The programme is designed to develop human resources to meet the challenges of the ever-growing technologically advanced IT industry and the digital revolution.

The global big data and business analytics market stood at US$ 169 billion in 2018 and is projected to grow to US$ 274 billion by 2022. PwC report predicts that by 2022, there will be around 3.5 million job postings in Data Science and Analytics in the US alone. According to TeamLease, India is staring at a shortage of 2, 00,000 analytics professionals over the next 3 years. Some of the career opportunities that require data analytics professionals are Big Data Engineer, Big Data Analyst, Big Data Analytics Architect, Big Data Solution Architect, Analytics Associate, Metrics and Analytics Specialist, Big Data Analytics Business Consultant, and Business Intelligence and Analytics Consultant.
