The Bachelor of Advanced Computing is designed with your computing career in mind. This provisionally accredited degree by the Australian Computer Society will develop practical and theoretical skills across the computing, information technology and business transformation industries.
As an advanced computing student, you will learn from leaders in the field. First year covers the core skills required to become a computing professional before you specialise in a major that aligns with your preferred career pathway: computer science, information systems, software development or computational data science.
You can combine your computing skills with a second major from over 100 study areas including music, commerce, science and the arts, and develop the well-rounded perspective highly valued by employers.
Computational Data Science
The Computational Data Science major will develop your mathematical, analytical and technical skills to create solutions to guide data-driven decision making. Data scientists build intelligent systems to manage, interpret, understand and derive key knowledge from big data sets.
Leveraging the University of Sydney's research strengths, you will explore the latest in computational statistics, large-scale data processing, data mining, machine learning and data visualisation, while also developing the skills to effectively communicate data insights to key stakeholders.
The programming, data analytical and machine learning skills that you will develop can be applied across any industry or science, and are highly valued in professional, research and development roles. Data is a vital asset to research and industry. The ability to effectively collect, clean, manage and analyse large or complex data sets is central for all engineering disciplines and data-intensive sciences, such as astronomy, biology and physics. For business, it delivers valuable insights into areas such as customer behaviour, market intelligence and operational performance.
In the major's capstone project, you will undertake an interdisciplinary project applying these skills to an authentic problem.
This course is provisionally accredited by the Australian Computer Society.
