Descrição do programa
This course has been developed as a response to a global talent gap for people with data science knowledge, as identified and reported by the McKinsey Global Institute study (2011). The study predicted a shortfall by 2018 of nearly 200,000 data scientists and 1.5 million managers with the capability to make decisions using big data in the United States alone. The dramatic growth of data in every conceivable industry, from oceanography to market research, presents another major driving force in generating unprecedented global demand for data science skills.
The course prepares students to participate in a variety of emerging careers with the growth of data science – data scientist, data engineer, data griot, data analyst, data artist, data journalist and data-driven policy expert, to name a few. While other offerings also provide the basis for these careers, this unique transdisciplinary course is the first of its kind in Australia where creativity and innovation are integral components, producing industry-ready graduates with strong technical, creative thinking and data ethics skills.
