This unit focuses on the foundational concepts of data science. Digital data is growing at a very fast rate with data being the underlying driver of the knowledge economy. This unit will prepare you with foundational knowledge and practical skills about data collection, representation, storage, retrieval, management, analysis, and visualisation through the exploration of data-related challenges. You will also learn the impact of big data and business analytics on business performance to cater for the development of useful information and knowledge in an attempt to achieve data-driven decision making.

Important note: Students enrolled in a subsequent unit who failed their pre-requisite unit, should drop the subsequent unit before the census date or within 10 working days of Fail grade notification. Students who do not drop the unit in this timeframe cannot later drop the unit without academic and financial liability.
