| Who we are and what we do
The Department of Data Science and Data Analytics Engineering was established at Loyola in 2016-17 as an answer to the ever rising need for analytical skills. Loyola Academy is the first college in twin cities to have introduced such a course which is a combination of Statistics and Computer Science. Today we experience a true deluge of data which shapes our lives, ranging from large global issues such as climate change to the smallest local problems. Data Science relevant subjects such as Python, R Programming and Big Data using Hadoop play a vital role in shaping students’ as Data Scientists in these fields.
Some key statistics for the Department of Data Science and Data Analytics Engineering:
We offer 1 UG Course, B.Sc. Data Science and Data Analytics Engineering of 3 years

Major projects are part of Loyola's curriculum. Our corporate tie-ups ensure our students have global exposure during their project period. As part of the B.Sc. Computer Data Science & Data Analytics and Engineering curriculum, students do projects related to Machine Learning, Predictive analytics in general and implement statistics at large to complete their degree.
We invite experts from the industry like IBM Technologies by PACE, an IBM Career Education Authorized business partner, Jigyasa Analytics, etc., to talk to our students on a regular basis.
Our dedicated labs are equipped with state-of-the-art infrastructure and cutting-edge technology. This ensures plenty of hands-on exposure for our students.
