Answering The Call
UTSA’s School of Data Science answers the national call for a highly skilled workforce to fill growing needs in cybersecurity, data analytics, business intelligence and digital asset management. Collaboration across these distinct disciplines will foster radical innovation to address critical challenges. The school’s location in the heart of San Antonio will provide government, industry and community partners with access to UTSA’s nationally recognized programs and expertise.
UTSA’s proposed School of Data Science will co-locate the university’s 70-plus faculty members in cybersecurity, cloud computing, data and analytics, and artificial intelligence under one highly collaborative roof. With a new facility housing classrooms, laboratories and research space, the school will support bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees, as well as certificate programs and other professional credential educational opportunities. A focus on connected classrooms and cutting-edge instructional technology will provide flexibility for course content delivery.
