Data Science emerged as an important discipline and its education is essential for success in almost every aspect of life.  Here comes the age of Big data. Big data impacts all aspects of our lives and society is admitting it. Data processing and other techniques are combined to convert abundant data into valuable information for society, organizations, and people. Specific strategies and approaches are needed to provide better to educate future data scientists to overcome the challenges of Big data. In this paper, we discussed the general concept of data science, Big data, and areas of Big data computing.

Data science, big data, 5vs of big data, big data computing, big data technologies.
