Enter the revolutionary area of big data where there is an acute shortage of data scientists. A recent McKinsey Global Institute report projects a 50 per cent gap between projected demand and supply by 2018.
Vast volumes of data are generated every day around the globe. The need to make sense of it has given rise to the revolutionary area of ‘Big Data’, and to a new career of ‘data scientist’. Data scientists find patterns, making meaning and drawing value from the seeming chaos.
Taught by leading researchers you will learn to analyse and visualise rich data sources, how to spot data trends and to generate data management strategies.
This postgraduate degree is offered as part of a suite of three programs (graduate certificate, graduate diploma and master). Each qualification extends to the next, so you can easily transition to a master level qualification.
If you decide to exit this degree having completed the first four courses you will receive the Graduate Certificate in Data Science. If you have completed the first eight courses you will receive the Graduate Diploma in Data Science.
