approach

  • Data science and analytics skills are crucial in a digital economy.  Canada needs to foster those skills in order to be competitive.


  • We at Fuzeium wanted to better understand where those skills are being actively developed and promoted.  


  • The emergence of words in education program-titles can suggest what is in demand for a given region--from both the employers and the students' perspective.  


  • The presence of a program can also suggest, which schools have the wherewithal to meet that demand.


  • Our analysis (for beta v7 June 2019) focused on program titles making reference to:  "Data", "Data Science", "Analytics", "Machine Learning".


  • We gathered data from numerous public web sites.  Then it was analyzed with Microsoft Power BI.


  • The results are publicly available. 

 

  • Disclaimer:  We recognize that people can enter the fields of Data Science & Analytics, including AI, from many other post-secondary programs.   Traditional program titles may not reference the keywords above, but the programs produce critical people & skills in engineering, science, maths, medicine, computing, business, economics, visual arts etc.
