Learning outcomes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
1 articulate and apply knowledge of frameworks, processes, and techniques of data analytics and incorporate with the principles and strategies of the business environment
2 apply analytical thinking on business needs assessment and analytical problem framing
3 apply practical knowledge and skills of Python programming to perform data preparation, exploration, and modelling tasks
4 effectively interpret and communicate insights from data analytics projects using appropriate data analytics techniques.
