Course Information

An understanding of data science is particularly important for policy makers in environmental science, as global and national data-sets providing measurements on a range of environmental issues become available. In this double degree you'll acquire knowledge in your chosen environmental science major combined with data gathering, analysis, modelling, interpretation and visualisation skills obtained through your data science studies. In your final year you will complete a capstone experience where you have the option to engage with university research, undertake an extended fieldwork program in your major, or complete an industry placement.
