Postgraduate Diploma in Data Analytics
The programme is based on three strands: Data, Tools & Techniques and Analytics. The programme aims to equip graduates with the skills, attitudes and competencies to engage as a data analytics practitioner in fields as diverse as finance, science, web analytics, engineering sports management and bioinformatics. Covering in-demand subjects such as databases, visualisation, SQL, Python, statistics and the R programming language, students will get an opportunity to apply these topics in a practical, capstone project. In addition, graduates will have the option of progressing on to the MSc in Data Analytics at TUS, should they wish (additional fees will apply).
Take the guesswork out of decision making with the TUS postgraduate diploma in Data Analytics.
Data Analytics is the process of examining vast quantities of data, often referred to as Big Data, in order to draw conclusions and insights about the information they contain. Some examples of Data Analytics applications include real-time fraud detection, complex competitive commercial analysis, website optimisation, intelligent air, road and other traffic management and consumer spending patterns.
Big Data presents three primary problems: there’s too much data to handle easily; the speed of data flowing in and out makes it difficult to analyse; and the range and type of data sources are too great to assimilate. With the right analytics and techniques, these big data can deliver hidden and unhidden insights, patterns and relationships from multiple sources using Data Analytics techniques.
TUS has developed an industry-focused, contemporary postgraduate programme that will equip graduates with the skills and aptitudes necessary to excel in the emerging field of Big Data and Data Analytics. This programme will ensure that you will be able to understand the data context, apply appropriate techniques and utilise the most relevant tools to generate insights into such data.
