The University of New England is the only Australian public university to be awarded the maximum 5 stars for Overall Experience by the Good Universities Guide, 13 years in a row. UNE has delivered distance education since 1955—that’s longer than any other Australian university. Perhaps that’s why students continue to rate UNE so highly for student satisfaction and teaching quality. With over 170 degrees offered online, and more than 20,000 online students, UNE is the expert in online education.

The world now runs on data. If knowledge is power, data science is increasingly how we discover that knowledge. With limitless possibilities for exploration and innovation, it is a field driven by discovery and communication. This subject introduces you to data science using simple and efficient toolkits in Python. You will explore various datasets and apply machine learning algorithms to them. In doing so, you will gain an understanding of data processing workflows, exploration, and visualisation, as well as a conceptual understanding of many of the algorithms themselves. Designed to be exploratory and collaborative, the subject offers you invaluable insights into a rapidly evolving field with diverse and increasingly important applications.
