B.Sc. (Data Science)


Data Science is a recent but a rapidly growing field providing students with exciting career paths, and vertical mobility in education pathways. The B.Sc. program in Data Science gives students a basic foundation in three special, but interrelated, branches of Mathematical Sciences namely, Computer Science, Statistics, and Mathematics. The knowledge of Data Science has not only become inevitable but also relevant for analysing and manipulating voluminous and/or complex data; which in the information era of 21stcentury is a reality of the day. Students of B.Sc. in Data Science program will learn computer programming, data analysis and database systems, and will learn to think critically about the process of handing and understanding data. The B.Sc. in Data Science program is a first-degree program that blends practical use of Data Science methods with the theoretical properties underpinning the performance of the methods and algorithms.


4-year Bachelor of Science Degree in Data Science with options to exit in the foundation, diploma or B.Sc. degree level.

Salient Features

  • A unique program, designed with inputs from eminent academicians and industry leaders, to focus on building skillsets for the growing requirement of data scientists in the industry.
  • Curriculum focuses on mainly on theoretical as well as practical aspects of Statistics, Computer Science and Mathematics
  • In built opportunity to improve soft skills as well as scientific writing.
  • Grading system at par with international standards.
  • A system of continuous evaluation through seminars, quizzes and practical assignments.
  • Guest faculty drawn from a pool of experts from Industry/academia thereby ensuring a balanced and continuous interaction with the industry.

Program Objectives

  • To expose and provide a strong foundation to the students in the upcoming era of Data Science and Artificial Intelligence.
  • The programme aims at providing a rigorous training in fundamental concepts of Statistics, Mathematics, & Computers Science which creates a strong knowledge base in Data Science domain.
  • To provide a complete understanding of the subject by introducing projects from the third semester on the relevant subject.
  • Focus on blending theory with practical and industry application to enhance understanding and learning.
  • Focus on the overall development of the students to help gain knowledge and skillsets required for further studies after completion of the course.



The course lays emphasis on the overall development of computational and analytical skills of a student coupled with an expansion of his/her knowledge base through an interdisciplinary course. The course comprises of lectures and practical on the basic concepts of Statistics, Mathematics, and Computer Science in the first year. Subsequently moving to the second year, the students are exposed to the core subjects of Statistics and Mathematics. From the third semester student has to do a project in any of the core subject taught in that semester. In the fifth semester, students will be exposed to the papers such Machine Learning techniques. In final semester subject of Deep learning techniques other statistical papers will make student ready to pursue further study in the field of Data Science.

The course is designed in consultation with our Board of Studies, which comprises of experts from academia, research institutions and industry. Thus, the course is tailor made to fulfill the requirements needed to keep pace with the current & future developments in industry.

While the student will have ample opportunity to acquire hands-on training on modern softwares wherever necessary, he/she will also be able to benefit from the expertise of one or more supervisors, wherever needed.

Along with the permanent faculties, the regular lectures are also conducted by visiting faculties who are experts in their respective fields. Apart from the course work, the Faculty also conducts Guest lectures by eminent academicians and statisticians to ensure learner centric environment.
