Data Science has been described as a high growth career field because of the increased utilization of experts who can analyze what's known as "Big Data" and help devise solutions based on that data for use throughout business, industry and government. Eastern Florida State College prepares students for mid-level positions in this expanding field through the Data Science specialization within the Computer Information Systems Technology Bachelor of Applied Science degree.
