Overview

Organisations increasingly need to process large volumes of digital data, from personal medical histories, to socio-economic statistics, to internet trends. Data scientists are one of the newest professions to come from this demand for effective storage, maintenance, and use of 'big data'. Graduates with modern technical knowledge of computing systems and statistical simulation are needed to process information in a range of industries.

Data Science combines mathematics, computing, technology innovation, and practical results. You will study at the forefront of modern practices and issues in the digital world, including ethics and security of data, strategy development, and statistical programming.

With such a wide range of industry applications and career opportunities, Data Science has been identified as one of the most essential and employable skills of the 21st century.
