Oh, is it just a change in code or will the content also be different? The change will also affect all the other computing/math majors right?
Afaik math curriculum no change eh; ma1104 (multivatiable) is still core module and only need to do 1 programming module for python

Maybe module change for dsa for their needs?

i think the code change only applies for dsa majors

other majors are not impacted and still use the old codes

The new batch of students will have Multivariable Calculus under MA2104.

CS1010S will stay.

CS1020 will become CS2030(I heard 2030 is easier than 1020)
CS2010 will become CS2040

They made the jump from CS2030 to CS2040 significantly bigger than the jump from CS1020 to CS2010.

Fundamentally, you'll still be learning in Java.

I believe the content differs slightly as well. For example, they sacrificed a lot of algo in favour of teaching students more trivial stuffs such as reading huge chunks of codes.

Does data analytics or business analytics have better career prospects generally?

I think both stands out in different aspects.
Data Analytics is more applicable to analyzing with Data Science and handling of Big Data so it's probably easier to find a job. Although I also personally feel that Data Science can be picked up by anyone as well.
Business Analytics is probably more in-depth with regards to marketing and businesses and also more focused on what can be used to their advantage in the short to mid term although projection to the long-term (analyzing trends with Data Science) is possible just not as important.
Of course, you will probably get better answers asking the profs because my answer (or any answer given here) will be subjective in some sense (since it's about our personal thoughts).

if u r refering to data sci in FOS vs biz analytics in SOC, then i think data sci is more advantages bcos of its more rigorous curriculum.

while business acumen is impt, it is something u can pick up on ur own or during ur initial career. dont waste ur modules on it.

Meanwhile I'm sad cause I could have split my grades into two modules instead. Algo is currently the only mod I can score at, whilst my ST and MA modules are... RIP.
