Harvard Business Review recently described the job of Data Scientist as “the sexiest job of the 21st century”. Data science is about doing some detective work and carrying out the investigations needed to inform important decisions and to predict new trends. Technology is growing and evolving at an incredible speed, and both the rate of growth of data we generate and the devices we use to process it can only increase.
Demand for skilled graduates in the areas of big data and data science & analytics is growing rapidly in both the public and private sector, and there is a predicted shortage of data scientists with the skills to understand and make commercial decisions based on the analysis of big data. A successful career in data science requires you to possess truly interdisciplinary knowledge, so we ensure that you graduate with a wide-ranging yet specialised set of skills in this area. Data scientists are required in every sector, carrying out statistical analysis or mining data on social media, so our Qualification can open the door to almost any industry, from health, to government, to publishing.
Diploma in Data Analytics is a fundamental to Data Analytics. Any Graduates or “A” Level (or Equivalent) Completed Students can join for this Program.
The Graduates (Computer Science or Applications /Mathematics/Statistics. Etc) may get exemptions for the Modules 01 & 02 based on their Under Graduation.
