Minor

Statistics

Diploma in Science

Apply the tools of modern statistics to inform data-driven decision making and solve real-world problems.

In this minor, we combine theory with practical experience to expand your critical thinking, enhance your analytical capabilities and develop your technical skills.

You'll discover how statistics are used to help solve real-world problems, such as improving medical treatments through data-driven experimental design, or using meteorological and spatial data to assess drought conditions in local communities.

You'll learn and apply statistical techniques to analyse and interpret complex data, and transform it into meaningful insights.

Professionals with statistics knowledge and data analysis skills are in high demand across business, industry, research and government to forecast, analyse and solve a variety of complex issues.
