Study data science at Griffith
Griffith is the first university in South East Queensland to offer data science and artificial intelligence as an undergraduate degree. In your studies you’ll use digital platforms to explore, gather, manipulate, visualise, automate and interpret large data sets.
Essential practical experience
With hands-on experience across common data science tools, including Python, Tableau, Hadoop and SQL, you will be ready to apply your new skills in your workplace.
In the final year of your degree, you will complete a practical project for industry or a research placement. This will help to build your network of industry connections and seek employment.
Data science and artificial intelligence can be undertaken as a major in the Bachelor of Computer Science or a double degree with the Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Environmental Science, Bachelor of Engineering or Bachelor of Business. Doing a double degree with data science will give you a specialised skill set in your chosen major and expand your career options.
Study your way
You can create your course timetable to fit in with your job or your travel plans, just ask us how. With the flexibility of studying part-time or full-time, over two or three trimesters, you have choices.
Bachelor of Science/Bachelor of Data Science
'For anyone looking to study at Griffith, I strongly encourage you to consider undertaking a double degree. This year I got to take a class about website design and then with a short walk across campus later I’m learning about the ways in which we should help Australian wildlife damaged by forest fires.'
The demand for data science professionals is growing
Data science is highly applicable to various fields including environmental studies, biomedical sciences, cyber security, engineering, health care, business, economics, finance, marketing and many more. As a qualified data scientist you will find career opportunities across research, government, non-government agencies and industry.
The demand for data science professionals is growing with a forecast for annual growth of 2.4% over the next 5 years, outpacing the 1.5% annual growth for the Australian labour force*.* The future of work: Occupational and education trends in data science in Australia.
