A competitive edge in data science

Big data and data science is an emerging area of necessity for many fields—from science and engineering to economics and digital humanities.

Our Master of Data Science explores how data is changing our world. We give you the knowledge and skills to contribute in the areas you care about.

What will you do?

  • Undertake a specialised introductory IT program in your first semester.
  • Build core skills in programming, mathematics and data science.
  • Learn how data science techniques can drive changes in organisations, industries and communities.
  • Advance your abilities in chosen areas of interest.
  • Combine and apply your learning in a significant project.

Where could it take you?

You might help big businesses use data to make more informed decisions in the face of uncertainty. You could analyse data from apps to drive UX updates. Perhaps you’ll come up with innovative management systems as a data architect.
