Data Science

Data Science (also sometimes known as Data Analytics or Data Engineering) is about uncovering findings from data - picking out the hidden secrets which will help inform long-term business decisions. Data scientists are almost like detectives, trying to find the patterns within data. Useful skills for data scientists include understanding technology, mathematics, and business experience.
