Bachelor of Science in Analytics

University of Technology Sydney

The Bachelor of Science in Analytics focuses on the analytical skills and technical knowledge that underpin the sophisticated data analysis tools on which key aspects of business activity rely. These tools enable industry to capitalise on big data by gaining insights through expert interpretation of results of statistical and other quantitative analyses. In this course students study key areas of business activity and develop a broad range of mathematical, statistical, computational and data management skills, as well as experience in the use of the information technology required for modern data analysis. Business and other organisations require skills that provide competitive advantage in today's dynamic marketplace.

Data science and analytics are keys to success in knowledge-based industries and in delivering high-value data products. This program equips students to practise as data science and analytics professionals, developing information technology skills, expertise in statistics and mathematics, and familiarity with key areas of business and policy development.
