    ABOUT PROGRAMME

    OVERVIEW

    Analytics is situated at the confluence of statistics, computer science and mathematics all centered on finding, interpreting and presenting meaningful patterns in data. We offer a Bachelor of Science in Analytics with specialization in either Data Analytics or Business Analytics, with co-operative education options available in both specializations. As data increasingly pervades our lives, graduates in Analytics are in high demand across a broad spectrum of fields including government, business and technology.

    COURSE STRUCTURE

    Common Core

    All degree programs in the School of Mathematical and Computational Sciences are built on a common core of courses that should be completed in the first two years of study. This common core consists of the following courses:

    Common Breadth Requirement

    Students must take at least 15 semester hours of credit beyond the core course requirement in courses outside the School of Mathematical and Computational Sciences, and of these 15 semester hours of credit at least 6 must be from outside the Faculty of Science.

    Common Advanced Courses

    Students in all degree programs in the School of Mathematical and Computational Sciences must complete MCS 4210 Professional Communication and Practice (writing-intensive) and MCS 3050 Tutoring in Mathematical and Computational Sciences.

    CO-OPERATIVE EDUCATION
    Combining classroom studies with practical work experience

    The UPEI Co-op Program is an integrated approach to university education which enables students to alternate academic terms on campus with work terms in suitable employment. The success of such programs is founded on the principle that students are able to apply theoretical knowledge from course studies in the workplace and return to the classroom with practical workplace experience.

    Students accepted into the program, complete at least three 14-week paid work terms and three professional development courses.

    The Co-op option is available to full-time students in any Mathematical and Computational Sciences Major or Honours program. Applications to the Co-op Education Program are normally made after completion of the first year of study.

    Mathematical and Computational Sciences students must complete 126 semester hours of credit in order to graduate with the Co-op designation; students who successfully complete all the requirements of the program will have the notation entered on their transcripts and on the graduation parchment.

    See the Co-operative Education Program website for more information.
