A rapidly expanding field that shows no sign of slowing.
Big data and analytics now drive and inform strategic decision making and innovation whether it is in relation to engineering, finance, health or other professional areas.
The challenge for organisations around the world is how to harness ever increasing volumes of data as an asset.
The Master of Data Science provides students with the knowledge and skills to understand and apply appropriate analytical methodologies to transform the way an organisation achieves its objectives, to deal effectively with large data management tasks, to master the statistical and machine learning foundations on which data analytics is built, and to evaluate and communicate the effectiveness of new technologies.
Students will gain a detailed knowledge of contemporary data management and analysis technologies, including those for data collection and storage, visualisation, internet-based applications, and software project management.
Students will also acquire essential skills in high performance computing.
