Your career opportunities lie in areas requiring data to be collected, systematically managed, evaluated and presented on a large scale. You are in high demand in the job market because, among other things, the demand for educated statisticians is growing exponentially in lieu of digitization and new data collection methods. Our graduates learn about addressing the following:
In order to be admitted to the Bachelor's degree program, you must fulfill the following requirements.
Statics is about the structural stability. When teaching statistics, we aim to draw conclusions by looking at the data.
On the contrary. Statistical methods give you exciting insight that plays a key role in developing new drugs or supporting management decisions.
While a good understanding of mathematics would be an advantage, a basic interest and aptitude in mathematics is enough. The JKU offers preparation courses in mathematics to help you get started, giving you an opportunity to revise the material taught at upper-level high schools.
The Bachelor's degree programs in Artificial Intelligence and Statistics & Data Science overlap to the extent that both programs include courses in mathematics, computer science, data science, and machine learning.
The program objective, however, is different: While our program provides students with a broad spectrum of statistical methods that can be used to analyze data, the undergraduate degree program in Artificial Intelligence focuses on computer sciences.
Another difference is the language of instruction: Statistics & Data Science is offered in German.
After completing your undergraduate degree, you can continue your education by pursuing an advanced degree:
