This unit covers data analytical concepts, techniques and algorithms. Students will have the opportunity to explore how these can be applied to data analytics and visualisation. The understanding and application of data analytics can help in effective decision making and to gain new insights from large data sets. Visualisation will assist with presenting large and complex data sets and outcomes. This unit is reliant on on-line materials. Students must have access to a reliable high-speed broadband connection.
