UC Berkeley creates a Data Science major

class of college students

UC Berkeley’s fastest-growing class is data science 101. The new major merges aspects of computer science and statistics to mine the massive amount of available data. Internet-connected devices generate 2.5 quintillion bytes of data every day. The ability to process that information relies on statistics and programming skills. It also demands expertise in whatever subject the data is from. Read more about the new college degree at The Wall Street Journal.
