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 use contemporary data analytics libraries and tools
2 develop and apply algorithms to prepare data for analysis
3 analyse and apply appropriate data modelling approaches
4 develop business intelligence systems using data analytics tools and programming libraries
