Bachelor of Science (Data Science)
Data scientists collate and analyse large volumes of data and communicate their findings to a range of audiences. Their ability to use big data to predict future trends is becoming an essential part of decision making in business and government.
Data is being generated at an unprecedented rate and its availability will continue to increase. Every industry is using large volumes of data – from predicting weather patterns and optimising harvesting in agriculture, to improving patient diagnosis in the health industry, to enhancing the management of remote infrastructure in mining.
This is a multidisciplinary major. It combines studies in computing, emerging internet technologies, media and statistics. You will gain a foundation in programming and statistics, which will form the basis of higher-level studies in data mining, data security and computer simulation.
This course builds your capacity to extract, analyse and visualise large volumes of data and communicate analytical outcomes to a range of audiences. You’ll graduate equipped to enter a range of industries where data science is key to innovation.
