Digital technology not only fills all areas of interpersonal communication but also has an important influence on our economy.

Careers

Your Bachelor degree in Data Science career outlook

The Bachelor's degree in Data Science paves the way into various fields of work, e.g. engineering or consulting. What’s more, our programmes combine state-of-the-art lectures with industry-leading best practice examples and allow you to advance your career. Once you’ve completed your degree, you could work as...

Data Engineer

As a data engineer, you take care of all relevant processes related to the generation, storage, maintenance, processing, and dissemination of data. The development and monitoring of the hardware and software infrastructure are crucial. This includes designing, purchasing, and setting up all the necessary components that are appropriate for the respective requirements. Furthermore, as a data expert, you are responsible for the security and stability of the entire system as well as compliance with data protection and data security.

Data Scientist

As a data scientist, you systematically evaluate data and extract knowledge. Based on your findings, you support the company management, especially in strategic decisions. You also know how to present your knowledge clearly and communicate it to third parties without specific technical knowledge. Data scientists usually act in an advisory capacity and provide support in difficult situations. With your know-how, you are an expert, especially in the area of business intelligence and big data.

Digital Analytics Consultant

As an expert, you know how to correctly evaluate the flood of digital information and data - regardless of the end device. The goal is to filter out exactly the data that provides the customer with important information and figures so that they can derive trends and customer needs for their market from it. To achieve this, data must not only be collected and visualised, but also correctly interpreted. Strategic consulting is therefore one of the traits of a digital analytics consultant.
