This program was developed to meet demands for a workforce with skills in data analytics to inform high-quality, data-driven decision-making. This reflects a wider challenge to Australian business, government and community in terms of the effective use of public and commercial data for decision-making.
The rapid expansion of a digitally enabled environment has broadened both the threat and the opportunity in data-driven innovation. This multi-disciplinary bachelor degree comprising computer science, statistics, and social science courses can be applied across a host of settings from business, finance and health, through to national security.
The Bachelor of Applied Data Analytics is an inter-disciplinary degree that is designed to address a global shortage of graduates with skills in data analytics as applied to high-quality, data-informed decision-making. It is designed to develop inter-disciplinary knowledge across the three base disciplines of computing, statistics and social science. Our graduates will be ideally positioned to enter into jobs such as a Technology Entrepreneur, Database Administrator and Developer, Policy Analysis, Information and Data Analysis and Data Scientist.
Once you have met the program requirements of your degree, you may have enough electives to complete an additional major, minor or specialisation.
