Degree in  Data Science and Engineering

Engineering that seeks to provide solutions to complex problems by applying data analysis techniques.

The new Bachelor’s degree in Data Science and Engineering at Universidad CEU San Pablo is a response to the growing need of companies to apply artificial intelligence in order to perform increasingly advanced data analytics. Although it has points in common with other degrees such as Computer Engineering or Mathematical Engineering, with this degree you will learn to extract knowledge in any scientific and business field.

Mathematics, statistics, and computer science come together in a four-year program with a strong practical focus. Our ultimate goal is for you to learn the techniques and application of the most advanced computational tools for data analysis to propose solutions to complex problems and facilitate data-driven business decision making.

The Data Science and Engineering program, which is taught in bilingual mode (Spanish-English), will lay the foundations of your learning in artificial intelligence through subjects such as Machine Learning and Neural Networks and Deep Learning, among others. It also offers two itineraries, Bioinformatics and Business Information Systems, which will allow you to professionalize and specialize. You can also choose a third open itinerary with optional subjects.

This career shares innovation, educational quality, and a faculty of expert professionals. It will enable you to work in any sector or activity where there is room for intelligent data analysis, but also to devote yourself to research or teaching. Direct your career towards data and master the immense universe of information to generate a high impact on organizations. Prepare yourself for the future.

Why study the Bachelor’s degree in Data Science and Engineering at Universidad CEU San Pablo?

Valores Diferenciales

Study with a program that responds to the business needs that data science and engineering seeks to address. You will work on complex data management, processing, and storage projects, both individually and in teams, always supervised by professors who are experts in the field. You will learn to integrate mathematics, programming and data infrastructures in solving real-life problems. All this with a practical applied approach.

Our goal is to turn you into a professional of the highest technical level and that is why we created a program with different itineraries (specializations) that you will be able to choose in the third and fourth year: 

  • Bioinformatics, allows you to become familiar with the analysis of massive data from the life sciences, such as genomics, proteomics, transcriptomics, metabolomics and clinical data.
  • Business Information Systems, teaches you the cryptographic techniques used for the management and processing of data, the development of mobile applications, as well as the different types of systems for storing information in companies. 
  • You can also choose an open pathway with Elective.

You will work during your studies with real projects (both in class subjects and in the fourth year internship subject), which will determine a valuable professional experience at the end of the degree. We have agreements with leading companies that integrate data science and engineering into their business model, and our career service will help and guide you to get the internship that best suits your interests. You will also be able to do optional internships to make this professional experience even more valuable.
