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.
The Data Science program at Macquarie University emphasises concepts, insights and skills that will enable you to use current technologies and adapt to and create new technologies.
You’ll be able to process and analyse data sets, including big data; use mathematical and statistical modelling techniques, machine learning and data mining to solve challenging problems; and communicate your findings to different audiences.
