Abstract: While numerous advancements in data science had been made throughout the years, and data had been properly utilised in other industries, growth in the built environment sector in such regard remains laggard. Despite the vast interest in the subject from built environment professionals, the lack of information regarding the use of data science in the built environment creates difficulty in filling the knowledge gaps that these professionals have. This paper conducts a secondary analysis on the feedback received from evaluating the massive open online course on the edX platform called Data Science for Construction, Architecture and Engineering. Deep analysis into the responses produce the lessons learnt from the course, which highlighted the various needs and issues the professionals are currently facing in their personal data science journeys. Results showed that the gaps included the lack of data science application on real-life scenarios in various disciplines of the built environment – for example, application on BIM data in the design phase, project scheduling data in the construction phase and HVAC data in the operations phase. The identification of such information can be of use for the course developer improve the course. Furthermore, the information can aid other data science educators to develop content to better educate built environment professionals in the ways of data science, in hopes of smoothing the process of bridging the gap between the professionals and data science capabilities.
