Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)/Bachelor of Data Science

Griffith University

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00233E

As factories and other engineering environments transform into an industrial Internet of Things, the ability to analyse vast quantities of data to extract relevant intelligence is an increasingly and highly sought-after skill.Data science provides a broad knowledge of the exploration, gathering, manipulation, visualisation, automation and interpretation of data using digital platforms and can be applied to enable real-time performance optimisation.This double degree will enable you to provide data-based insights based on your specific expertise in engineering, to improve decision-making, reduce costs and increase efficiencies.You'll gain knowledge in your chosen engineering major and skills to access the insights large data sets provide and lead the way in translating data into actionable information including manipulation, modelling, interpretation and visualisation, using a range of digital platforms and tools.In your final year, you can enhance your employability through an industry placement to gain practical experience and valuable industry networks.You'll also graduate with a degree accredited by the national engineering body (Engineers Australia) and be fully equipped to work in local, national and international sectors.Engineering majors (offered at the Gold Coast) Civil Engineering Electrical and Electronic Engineering Mechanical Engineering Software Engineering
