Data Analysis and Data Management - Bachelor of Science


New research in science, economy, law and technology leads to large and complicated data sets. To interpret these data appropriately, in the context of patient or clientele data, stocks and shares, as well as weather and climate change, a knowledge of statistics, information technology and mathematics.

The necessary skills to deal with such bodies of data are often left out of statistics, IT and mathematics courses purely because the focus of these courses are on other  more course related topics, or the resources are just not available to offer the teaching. Although many diploma students have the opportunity to apply to data analysis courses while studying statistics, most lack the experience and knowledge of IT.

This experience can be learned in this interdisciplinary data analysis management and data science Bachelor-Master course, which is a joined project, including the faculties of statistics, IT and mathematics under the general management of the statistic department.



Course Structure

The course is built upon what is taught in the first year, i.e. the necessary basics of maths (Analysis, Vectors and Matrices), probability and statistics. The three year bachelor course goes on in the second and third years to look at data structures and programming, as well as lectures specific to the representation, interpretation and working of data. A strong emphasis is placed on case studies from the beginning in both the elective and required modules on the course, which is developed in the thesis. All courses are taught in German.

The main body of study is 18 modules, including 3 months for the thesis, all of which will be examined. More information about the course content and course modules can be found here.

Information on the course content can be found here.




The broad content of the bachelor course will allow you to choose the appropriate solutions to the right problems in economy, industry, or any area of applied science and apply them well. It will also allow you to continue your studies, e.g. masters in statistics or another directly related masters and then on to PhD. People who have studied statistics are known for having had exposure many types of data in many fields and are therefore strongly sought after in finance and economy, and many other different fields of work.

Please take note that the course and exam information is in some cases temporary and therefore is subject to change at any time.
