Data Science and Analytics Institute

Big Data – two small words that can have a major impact on how companies make key decisions.

Organizations large and small employ data scientists to determine profitable lines of business, characterize customers, evaluate and predict risks, improve operational efficiencies, predict system performance and perform complex simulations.

Data Science and Analytics is the development of analytical models and methods to extract new knowledge from vast, complex data. Our program, established in the Fall of 2014 at the Norman campus, provides our students with the skills to design and build tools to extract, assimilate and analyze data, and the systems understanding to predict and enhance future performance for enterprises across all domains of the private and public sectors.  

The OU Data Science and Analytics Institute (OU DSAI) offers a Graduate Certificate in Data Science and Analytics, a Master of Science in Data Science and Analytics, and a PhD in Data Science and Analytics with options to take classes onsite at the Norman campus and online. Current OU students can add our Undergraduate Certificate, or complete an Accelerated Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degree, a dual degree, or add our graduate certificate.

In addition to our credit-based offerings, OU DSAI provides non-degree learning and development opportunities and certifications for working professionals, and collaborative engagement with industry partners. For more information, visit our Industry Engagement page.
