Masters in Big Data Analytics in Australia

Study Big Data Analytics Masters Programmes

Big data analytics deals with the processing of data sets that are too large or too complex for traditional forms of data analysis. Data that has a larger amount of fields, and therefore more information, offers an increased level of statistical power. However, this is only the case if the data can be analysed correctly and managed properly. A big data analyst will be armed with the knowledge and skills to use more advanced data analysis processes and software programmes to ensure that the outcomes of the data analysis are accurate and useful.

During a masters in Big Data Analytics, you will build on the knowledge gained at undergraduate level, taking your skills to an advanced level. Some examples of modules you could study are:

  • Advanced Databases
  • Data Mining
  • Advanced Machine Learning
  • Internet Security and Protocols
  • Risk Assessment and Management
