### Course 10-ENG: Bachelor of Science in Engineering with Concentration

### 10-ENG DATA: Process Data Analytics Concentration

Process data analytics refers to techniques and tools for making inferences and decisions based on data from process systems. These technologies and techniques are increasingly used by the process industries to make better decisions about operations and supply chains. This field has become increasingly important due to the huge increases in the amount of data being collected, reductions in the cost of computer hardware, advances in data analytics algorithms, and the increased availability of powerful software tools.

**Note: **This concentration fits perfectly within the Statistics and Data Science minor on campus (https://stat.mit.edu/academics/minor-in-statistics/). If selected correctly, the SDS minor requires two additional courses.

**The concentration consists of four subjects taken from three categories.**
