BSc in Information Systems and Data Science
Degree Awarded: Bologna accredited Bachelor of Science in Information Technology (240 ECTS); UK degree by the University of West London (480 UK credits)
Nowadays, computers are essential in businesses for management of vital information. Every day is gaining importance innovation and the application and management of technology to create value for a business in this increasingly fierce competition in global markets.
Furthermore, technology is essential in our daily lives: laptops, mobile phones, web sites, medical records, online shopping, smart houses, etc. With every single use of technology, a new record containing information related to a certain activity can potentially be tracked. Everything that is measurable can be digitally stored. Therefore, it is easy to imagine the huge amount of data available for big multinationals, hospitals, governments, airports or research laboratories among many others institutions. Being able to analyse and learn as much as possible from all this data is a real challenge in the IT community in order to improve elements such as cost-related procedures, customers’ assessment or global human health.
With this course, the students will be able to identify how to address and solve real-life problems based on data, as well as create value through innovation and technology management. As well as modern business concepts, students will gain highly relevant IT skills that are of crucial importance for professional success in today's society, developing their analytical, creative and critical thinking.
All methodologies, concepts, frameworks and technologies that we provide students with are academically relevant and have been tried and tested by professionals in the business world. We apply newly acquired practices through engaged and interactive hand-on training in real-world technologies.

Understand and apply the building process of dashboards and information systems based on KPIs to provide accurate reports and solutions to business problems and new market scenarios depending on the target audience or recipient.
- Artificial Intelligence & Big Data: With every single use of technology, a new record containing information related to a certain activity can potentially be tracked. Dealing with this information is a real challenge in the IT community in order to improve elements such as cost-related procedures, customers’ assessment or global human health. In this sense, you will learn how to address and solve real-life problems based on data; get expertise in supervised, unsupervised and reinforcement learning, which are the three main branches of the artificial intelligence; implement solutions using different machine learning approaches, and learn how to build predictive models of different nature (parametric and non-parametric) that will allow you to predict an event of interest for a new given record.
- Data Warehousing: Successful business analytics depends on data quality, skilled analysts who understand the technologies and the business and an organizational commitment to data-driven decision making. Learn how to extract data from several business systems, transform it and integrate it into a single repository (data warehouse) to perform successful business analysis.
