M.S. in Data Science
Data is a vital asset valued by virtually every organisation in the world. It provides the basis for sensible, evidence-based decision making, and the ability to manage and make sense of data is a key skill in the modern workplace. In the last decade, streams of data of various types have grown in volume and velocity such that they require specialist skills in order to get the most value from them. Data scientists are responsible for buildng intelligent systems, mastering intuitive proesses and bringing structure to the vast quantities of data to unlock the potential for improvement and competitive advantage.
The Master of Data Science will provide students with the required knowledge and practical skills to analyse and manage data. They will learn how to deal with large and diverse data sets and apply a variety of technologies to extract meaning from them. This course will prepare students to solve complex and challenging problems in science, health, business and beyond, through a combination of engaging coursework subjects and a comprehensive capstone project experience.
The Master of Data Science is an entry-level postgraduate course that complements any existing skill set and provides opportunity to up-skill for positions that have a rigorous quantitative aspect. Graduates from this program will be well-equipped to tackle complex data science challenges and play a leading role in the future development of data science solutions globally.
The Master of Data Science has been granted Professional Level accreditation by the Australian Computer Society and, through the Seoul Accord, is recognised in other countries.
