Data Analytics
Transforming How We Live and Work
Instructors: Prof Carol Hargreaves and Dr Vik Gopal

Between the dawn of civilisation and 2003, the human race created five exabytes (5 x 1018 bytes) of information. Now we are creating that amount every two days. Discover how to unlock insights from Big Data using data science. Through Python Programming and Tableau, students will learn how to relate statistical analysis, computer programming and visualisation to deliver business value. Through data analytics, students can better derive insights from customer data, to develop effective customer retention strategies.

Forensic Science
Res Ipsa Loquitur (‘Let the Thing Speak for Itself’)
Instructor: Prof Stella Tan

Forensic science has shaped the world of justice and developments in the field have introduced many vital crime-solving techniques over the past few decades. Students will delve into the fascinating world of forensic evidence from crime scene to court, and how objective evidence can convict the guilty as well as exonerate the innocent. The courses will touch on court case studies of crime and death investigation, and discuss the scientific value of past court cases.
