Data analysis and modelling underpins all aspects of social and community development and thanks to the internet and smart phones there has been a dramatic growth in the scale and complexity of data that can be collected and analysed across industries including health care, sports, business practices, scientific discoveries and government policy.
To help process and navigate this vast and ever-growing mass of data, the industry desperately needs trained specialists who can understand and interpret vast amounts of data (big data), while providing effective and ethical ways to protect the privacy of that information.
Using a unique combination of interdisciplinary coursework, a strong background in research methodology and comprehensive training via industry-based projects (work-integrated learning), this course will uniquely position graduates of this course to become leaders in this field in either industry, the government sector or academia.
