BUILD THE SKILLS TO DRIVE INNOVATION WITH DATA SCIENCE
In an increasingly digital world, Data Science plays a crucial role in driving decisions, innovation, productivity and success. Big Data analytics has changed the way organisations identify trends, challenges and new opportunities. This means that Big Data has the potential to bring about enormous social and economic benefits. A strategic use of Big Data will form the key basis of competition, underpinning new waves of productivity, growth, innovation and consumer surplus.
SP Jain’s Bachelor of Data Science (BDS) is a 3-year full-time undergraduate program designed to prepare graduates who can conduct data-driven investigations and visual and advanced analytics by acquiring and managing data of all types. Through this program, students will develop an in-depth understanding of data science and the techniques for analysis of quantitative and qualitative data to arrive at solutions. The BDS program curriculum is made of a blend of core, ethics and employability skills, and industry collaborated projects that give students practical, hands-on experience.
Successful BDS graduates will be well-equipped to fill the need for data expertise in various sectors such as IT, marketing, manufacturing, banking and finance, retail and healthcare. They will also be prepared to undertake graduate studies.

Students can choose to pursue the BDS program in one of the following formats:
Note: This program is not offered in Singapore and is not approved or attested by CPE.
Upon completing your Bachelor of Data Science degree, you may be able to continue to live and work in Australia by applying for a post-study work visa of up to 4 years*
*As an international student, you may be able to continue to live and work in Australia temporarily following the completion of your undergraduate degree at SP Jain. While graduating students can apply for a post-study work visa of up to 4 years per the current immigration guidelines, it is not a guaranteed program outcome. Please check the Australian Government’s Department of Home Affairs website regularly for eligibility, more information and updates.
SP Jain is an industry leader and the BDS program offered by the school is beyond great. We are taught by top globally renowned faculty who are experts in the field. The program is extremely well designed and I am confident that it will help develop me into a quality data scientist.
Across the span of 3 years, I have interned at 5 organisations across different countries.
Data Science is a very niche field which also makes it a highly competitive profession. Being a good data scientist requires one to be good at mathematics, statistics, and problem-solving. This degree has laid the foundation of data science which is helping me grasp more concepts and apply them to solve problems.
At SP Jain, we learnt logical coding, MongoDB and data exploration that proved to be the most useful. The absolute important thing is self-improvement – to study new things and figure out how to solve problems. The BDS program helped us understand how to handle datasets and problem-solving.
As a Business System Engineer at Nexon, I’m responsible for designing, developing and maintaining applications software and integrations for internal solutions. We got to know about this job opportunity through Professor Aditya Narvekar (Assistant Professor – Data Science, SP Jain). The interview was rigorous and focused on logical thinking, industrial knowledge and technical knowledge.
The highlight of SP Jain’s BDS program has been the hands-on experience we get apart from the classroom learning. I chose this program because of the School’s accomplished faculty and strong industry connections. The program curriculum is brilliantly structured and includes everything one would need to build a career in technology.
I’m currently working as a software developer intern at Adaptive Investment Solutions. I was offered this opportunity in August 2020 and was introduced to the team at Adaptive by Prof Aditya Narvekar and Prof Abhijit Dasgupta. The skills I learnt at SP Jain formed a strong foundation and helped me hold my own during the initial days of the internship.
Throughout my internship, the one aspect that constantly stood out for me was the level at which we were able to apply the knowledge we gained in our SP Jain classrooms to the project. I believe that the academic structure of the BDS program has equipped us with everything essential to succeed in this role. Our curriculum focussed a lot on machine learning and data visualisation methods, and these are concepts that we could apply to my research first-hand, helping us gain favourable results.
I’m interning with Adaptive for three months as a software engineer. I’m working and learning as a front-end developer, along with other developers, and in charge of any processes/developments relating to the user interfaces of an application on both website and mobile platforms.
