Data Analytics

"There is a large and growing demand in industry for skilled data analytic professionals. Organisations need to unlock the value of data to make better decisions to be more effective and efficient. We are excited to offer our new data analytics courses to provide our graduates with state-of-the-art knowledge and skills to keep them at cutting edge of this rapidly evolving field."

Dr Helen Thompson - Senior Lecturer in Statistics

Master of Data Analytics

Electrical Engineering

"What attracted me to engineering was the chance to put critical thinking into practise, and work as an inventor to solve real world problems. While studying I was involved with the Girls in Engineering Making Statements club and the Big Sister / Little Sister mentoring program, which gives the higher year students a chance to help the first and second year students settle in."

Deanna Hood

Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Electrical)

Information Technology

"I chose QUT based on reputation. The infrastructure and the lab facilities were great. I'm now with Google and get to enjoy lots of travel. It has, hands-down, the best company culture with constant learning opportunities."

David Wearing
