Program Overview

Data is used by organisations of all sizes to make better decisions. In this degree, you will learn how to analyse and interpret data to inform decision-making and forecast trends.

With big data comes big responsibility, and you will learn the importance of data security, ethics, and strategy. You will learn skills in programming, mathematics, and statistics from experts in biology, computing, geography, linguistics, and many other fields. As a result, you will be able to contribute your diverse skillset across many cross-disciplinary fields.

What will my study involve?

  • Depending on your chosen major, you will have a range of hands-on learning experiences that may take place from our laboratories to our field stations. These can include high-tech computing systems, modern equipment, and the latest technology.

  • Project work in your final year will give you real world experience in applying data science to create workplace solutions.

  • We have research centres that specialise in data science, with projects ranging from climate change prediction models in Antarctica, geospatial mapping for urban planning in rural Aotearoa, VR simulation training systems for firefighters, and much more.
