Data Science


Data is an essential asset in many organisations as it enables informed decision making into many areas including market intelligence and science. In the major in Data Science, you will learn computational and analytical skill sets that stem from statistics and computer science, to manage, interpret, understand, analyse and derive key knowledge from the data. You will develop critical thinking about data and its use, a deep understanding of the core technical skills required and an appreciation for the context in which that data was collected. At the senior levels of study level and beyond, you will develop the ability to understand problems from many disciplines and place a data-driven problem into an analytical framework, solve the problem through computational means, interpret the results and communicate them to clients or collaborators.
