Program overview

Data has the potential to transform the way business, government, science and healthcare is carried out. Conventional manual techniques, however, aren't capable of handling the deluge of data that modern systems generate. Data science, which applies specialised computational and statistical techniques to analyse such 'big data', is considered one of the key skills of the 21st century and there is a skills shortage in this field. This interdisciplinary course will enhance your skills and give you a range of technical skills necessary to work in data science across a variety of industries.
