NUS - Data Science and Analytics

Anyone planning to get into this new course?

For AY16/17:
More information on DSA here

Graduation requirements can be found here(updated).

1. MA2104 Multivariable Calculus has been added as an alternative to MA2311 Techniques in Advanced Calculus. The Department of Mathematics will start offering MA2104 in Sem 2 AY 17/18.

2. ST4240 Data Mining in List B1 has been replaced by two new modules: ST3248 Statistical Learning I and ST4248 Statistical Learning II. These two new modules will be offered for the first time in AY 18/19, in Sem 1 and Sem 2 respectively. ST4240 will be offered for the last time in Sem 2 AY 17/18. You should not read ST4240 as it cannot be used to satisfy the major requirements and will preclude you from reading both ST3248 and ST4248.
Information on new DSA-coded modules can be found here.

IGP for AY2016/2017: 10th percentile at AAB/C (80 Rank Points)
Historical IGP

For AY17/18 onwards:
Refer to this page.

Programme Requirement: Here

For AY17/18 onwards, DSA students need to complete at least 2 semesters of internship(Semester 1 and 2). Alternatively, students also have an option to undergo a newly initiated Co-Operative Education. In this scheme, students can take up an internship of up to 1.5 years(or 18 months) in addition to the 2 required semesters of internship.. Check here for more info on this path.

What are the reasons behind you thinking that it's a half fugged course?

Anyways, it's not part of SOC mah. It's from the fos ley.

1 Apple 1 Orange. How to compare?

It's like asking Arts & Science. Which is better?

Can anyone share some insight about the market for entry level jobs in data science? Do you think this course will be enough to get a job or still need to take Masters? Cause I went to search some job portals, saw that most jobs need experience and at least Masters.

dun understand the analogy. y cannot compare apple and orange... can always compare the nutritional value, price of the 2 fruits, ease of growing, weight of the 2 fruits... jus depends on which dimension u wanna compare nia. its like asking is the apple or orange heavier.. then u say cannot compare bcos 1 apple 1 orange.

anyway, DSA and BA are not that different such that u totally cant compare them. probably half of the modules are overlapping. The underlying techniques taught by the 2 are largely similar (or atleast it can be easily picked up by the other major given the foundation from the essential mods).

You can find it on the NUS stats website. I would post a link but I don't have enough posts.

Were you offered this course too?

Currently, I don't have much information on DSA. Online, I have found a discussion thread on Reddit on this topic here.

May I ask if you have attended the freshman talk on DSA?
