Data science is the science of learning from data. Data science brings together techniques and methods from computer science, information science and statistics in order to extract knowledge from large, complex datasets, and to communicate and apply this knowledge.
If you enjoy problem-solving and wish to combine your interests in statistics and computing, a degree in Data Science will appeal to you. You will learn how to use technology to acquire, handle and analyse data, and how to think critically and ethically.
Graduates in Data Science obtain data-driven jobs in business, industry, government, consulting and science.
