Dealing with data is increasingly becoming a key skill in many professions. Companies are increasingly offering data-based business models, optimizing their processes based on data or developing products that themselves produce data. All of this requires suitably qualified specialists in development, sales and management. In this professional field of the future, graduates of this degree program have the best job prospects worldwide.
According to a survey commissioned by BITCOM in 2014, 90 % of German companies evaluate IT-based data for decision-making processes. Knowledge in the field of data science is therefore important in many economic sectors.
At TH OWL, students will find optimal conditions: Data Science is the central research topic of the research institutes located on the university campus in Lemgo; i.e. the Institute Industrial IT (inIT), the Fraunhofer IOSB-INA and the SmartfactoryOWL, a joint initiative of the Fraunhofer Society and OWL University of Applied Sciences and Arts.
The bachelor’s degree program Data Science is also offered as a cooperative training program (in German, “Duales Studium”).
