What is DASE?

Data Analytics and Systems Engineering (DASE) is an interdisciplinary field about processes
and large systems to extract knowledge or insights from data in various forms. It incorporates
many fields of study to include mathematics, statistics, computer science, operations research,
industrial and systems engineering, and operations management. It employs techniques such as
data visualization, data mining, and predictive analysis to help aid decision-making. Data and
systems engineering is concerned with the design, improvement and installation of integrated
systems of people, materials, data, information, equipment and energy.

Why Should I Consider a BI in Data Analytics and Systems Engineering?

Data Analytics and Systems Engineering is the perfect career for people who like to solve
practical problems in a variety of working environments and develop systems to improve quality
and productivity. DASE engineers focus on how to get the work done most efficiently,
balancing many factors—such as time, number of workers needed, available technology, actions
workers need to take, achieving the end product with no errors, workers’ safety, environmental
concerns, and cost.
To find ways to reduce waste and improve performance, DASE engineers use mathematical
methods and models to design manufacturing and information systems to meet those
requirements most efficiently.

The Bachelor of Innovation in Data Analytics and Systems Engineering will provide students with both the technical and business background to work on innovative  projects, including the ability to: (1) break down complex problems and apply logical and strategical processes towards solutions; (2) understand the technological, business, legal and societal constraints affecting this technology; and (3) have the ability to communicate the key issues, needs, potential options, and final solution to a problem.

DASE is a highly marketable, in demand degree that invokes the fields of engineering, math and computer science.

What might my college schedule look like?
The following sample plan represents the suggested order and semesters in which students should take course to graduate within four years. Since each student starts at a different level of mathematical ability, this listing should only be considered a guide. Specific questions about the sample program should be directed to the Engineering Adviser.
