Overview

Data is used by organisations of all sizes to make better decisions. In this degree, you will learn how to analyse and interpret data to inform decision-making and forecast trends.

With big data comes big responsibility, and you will learn the importance of data security, ethics, and strategy. You will learn skills in programming, mathematics, and statistics from experts in biology, computing, geography, linguistics, and many other fields. As a result, you will be able to contribute your diverse skillset across many cross-disciplinary fields.

A number of our research centres utilise data science, including Toi Hangarau | Geospatial Research Institute; Hangarau Tangata, Tangata Hangarau | HIT Lab NZ; Wireless Research Centre; Te Kāhui Roro Reo | NZ Institute of Language, Brain and Behaviour; and Te Pokapū Aronui ā-Matihiko | UC Arts Digital Lab.
