Algorithms: You understand the theory of data science, the statistics, modelling rules and mathematics that are at the heart of any data problem. You understand how experiments are designed and measured. You understand the algorithms and theory behind data science. Engineering: You understand the engineering required to source, process and store data. You should be aware of programming languages and distributed computing schemes that will help you deal with massive amounts of data at scale. You should understand the programming that applies your theories to massive datasets. (Engineering) Communication: You understand how to communicate your solutions, and how to relate those solutions to business problems.
