The Master of Data Science is a two-year degree which enables students to develop the knowledge and skills to work as data scientists in a wide range of industries including: science, business, health, agriculture, sport, transport, or logistics. There is increasingly high demand for an accurate extraction of insightful knowledge from big data collection, and for the ability to make predictions on future trends and performance. The complexity and volume of big data collections (images, documents, social media data, streaming sensor data) drives the need for a unique set of skills in big data computing, analytical modelling and intelligence systems which underpins the Data Science degree.
Specifically, this course has three major specialisation areas:
Big Data and Cloud Computing
Each major includes a set of core advanced subjects from the computer science and mathematics/statistics disciplines and a number of specialised advanced subjects including big data management, computational intelligence for analytics, data exploration and visualisation, cloud systems development, analysis of repeated measures data, meta-analysis, and bioinformatics technologies.
