Data Analytics & Data Engineering#

The rapid expansion of the digital environment has increased the opportunity for data-driven innovation. Learn how to harness data at scale. The Data Engineering and Applied Data Analytics programs provide the skills necessary to build computing pipelines that transform data into formats that analysts can use to drive decision making in diverse application domains.

Courses in these programs are taught in both blended mode (recommended for students working and studying part-time) and semester mode (on-campus). Blended mode courses comprise mostly on-line study with a full-time intensive week on campus at ANU in Canberra in the middle of the course (4 weeks on-line, one week on-campus intensive, 4 weeks on-line). The intensive week provides a cohort experience for students to meet and work with their peers, fostering a national network of data professionals.
