This program provides the necessary skills for entering the world of big data and data science, an emerging area of necessity for many fields, including science, engineering, economics and digital humanities. The program will help students understand how data is changing our world, and how learners can apply data science techniques to drive changes in their organisation or area.

In the Master of Data Science, students undertake a specialised introductory program in their first semester, designed to address fundamental requirements in programming, mathematics and data science. Students then proceed with a program of courses tailored to their particular interest, building skill and knowledge in data science, as well as a significant project designed to combine skills developed across the program.
