Computing and Data Science

Computing and Data Science

In the era of big data, colossal amount of data is being generated every day from channels including social media, consumer profile, global economy, etc. These complications of data require us not only to describe and understand the information, but more importantly, to reveal crucial information to facilitate the best course of action. Therefore, the demand for the application of big data has increased sharply, which has led to the emergence of a cross-disciplinary independent subject, "Data Science", which has led to the systematic development and promotion of methods for dismantling big data. HKU SPACE provides a comprehensive range of computing and data science programmes to support students to learn the latest knowledge and practical skills of the industry.
