Data, technology and artificial intelligence (AI) are reshaping our world and business decisions. So could you.

Almost every area of life, study and work is touched by data and technology. Data is an essential factor in every business and industry. Employment opportunities for information and communication technology (ICT) professionals – including data, systems and security specialists – are set to grow 22% by 2033*. The potential applications and opportunities are almost limitless.  

As data, AI and technology continually evolve, it also raises the question – how should we use data? The field needs professionals to respond to the implications of our rapidly expanding data landscapes. Whether by protecting consumers, advocating data ethics and governance, or safeguarding against breaches and attacks – you could make an impact in the way we use and interact with data and technology.

Interested in shaping tomorrow’s technology landscape? Leading the future of data, technology and AI starts at UNSW Sydney.
