Information Technology has always been one of the most popular majors at DTU. The University collaborates with universities worldwide, such as with Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), one of the four leading universities in IT in the US, to develop curricula for Software Engineering, Information Systems and Network Security that all meet international standards. Normally about 94% of all DTU graduates find jobs within three months. However, 100% the CMU IT students find employment before graduation. The university is equipped with twelve highly configurable computer rooms with all the necessary training software and the new major promises to graduate expert software engineers.
Students will be taught about big data and the technologies and algorithms of machine learning to process and query it. For students with analytic minds and the ability to process data, this major will pave the road to success. In particular, the education of data scientists requires learning how to integrate big data into the IT framework of a company and program and execute software for data analysis for marketing, sales and strategic planning.
With the ability to analyze and summarize data using advanced algorithms, Bachelors of Big Data & Machine Learning will have excellent job opportunities. Graduates of this major can find jobs in the same companies where Bachelors of Software Engineering and Information Systems already work, in comfortable working environments with high chances of promotion.
