My name is Lukas, and I am in my 5th semester of Data Science.
Data Science is in general quite a new field that was quickly developed as a response to the enormous amounts of data that is being produced. When I joined ITU I had only a little knowledge of Data Science, but that has thankfully changed as I am only 2 semesters away of handing in my bachelor's thesis.
The official program description states: "You will develop comprehensive analytical and technical skills covering all aspects of handling and analyzing data". What I truly enjoy about the program is that you can also utilize those technical skills even outside of the context of Data Science, which really opens a lot of doors for your interests.
Please don't hesitate to reach out to me if you want to know more about the program, life as an international at ITU or ITU in general 😊
