Data analytics applies fundamental scientific principles to the analysis of large, complex data sets, which are important tools in the worlds of business, industry, agriculture, health care, education, sciences, and many other fields that produce and rely on data to function better. Many companies, nonprofits and government agencies collect data to evaluate past performance and predict future trends. They employ data scientists to extract important details from data and help make decisions to strengthen the organization’s performance.

WSU Vancouver will train you to be a responsible data citizen who serves as the conduit between the theory (computing, mathematics and statistics) and the data domain (organization or industry from which the data arises), understanding the principles of both. When you graduate, you will be able to analyze various kinds and types of data from start to finish, using techniques that are theoretically valid, practically feasible and relevant, ethical and legally viable, and effectively communicate your findings in various multimedia forms.
