B.Sc. in Data Science
This unique program was created in consultation with leaders in the field at UC Berkeley and Stanford University and is regularly updated based on the changing needs of both industry and academia.
The curriculum includes a combination of subjects from information theory, statistics, mathematics and computer science. This is a three year degree program and prepares students for careers in a variety of fields, including; medical imaging, computational linguistics, epidemiology and behavioural patterns in computerized systems.
Special Activities & Opportunities
The faculty offers an excellence program whereby outstanding students can further develop their abilities, expand their horizons and be exposed to areas of knowledge and research beyond the regular curriculum. The participating students conduct research and development in diverse areas, for example; artificial intelligence, cyber, natural language processing, and data science and each student is mentored by a faculty member specializing in their selected field of research. The final goal of the program is for the student to write and present an academic paper at an international conference.
The faculty also participates in numerous hackathons. Examples include; a hackathon with the company Split.It, a hackathon with Nokia, as well as a hackathon in China, in which a COLMAN student won 1st prize.
The faculty has a career advisor offering a vast network of connections with leading HR managers and recruiters in Israeli high-tech companies. Moreover, we encourage our students to participate in the internship program, which incorporates a work placement and provides students the opportunity to gain initial work experience.
