The management and analysis of big data are becoming increasingly important in commerce, industry and applied sciences. Data science is a rapidly growing field that has evolved to address this need, and sits at the intersection of statistics and computer science.
The newly-established Master of Data Science combines these disciplines in a single coordinated program. Students will develop the technological abilities and analytical skills needed to manage and gain insights from large and complex collections of data. You will additionally become well-versed in using statistical tools, techniques and methods, along with in-depth analysis and evaluation, to solve real-world problems in the data realm.
As a graduate, you may find a rewarding career in:
- Information technology and communications
- Science research and education
- Health and medical industries
- Business and financial services
- Sales and marketing
- Engineering and mining
- Climate and weather forecasting
