Data Innovation Hub to boost skills in data analytics and AI

A new Data Innovation Hub at RMIT will offer students opportunities to work with leading organisations who are using data analytics and AI to solve real world problems and create value for their business.

With the program expected to grow and be developed further in the next 12 months, it will prepare students for emerging jobs through practical bootcamps, industry mentoring, paid internships, on-the-job coaching and other exciting work integrated learning experiences. 

The program has been developed in partnership with our industry partners, including Deloitte, Commonwealth Bank, Amazon Web Services (AWS), EY, Latitude Financial Services, Macquarie Group, Pragma Partners, Slalom, Synergy Group and Transurban.

Professor Aleks Subic, Deputy Vice-Chancellor STEM College and Vice-President Digital Innovation, says that the Data Innovation Hub will prepare our graduates for a successful career in data analytics and AI in a wide range of industry sectors

“Through this unique partnership model involving the enterprise and academic parts of the university, students will work as data consultants both in our own University data analytics operations, and through placements with our industry partners, following an innovative Bootcamp based training program,” he said.

“As we lead the digital transformation at RMIT, we want to deliver authentic industry experiences for our students and provide a truly innovative education experience that will prepare them for work and life.”

Nonna Milmeister, Chief Data and Analytics Officer RMIT University says that for industry, it’s an opportunity to help shape the future workforce and collaborate with RMIT academics and researchers on real world problems.

“Demand for skilled data analysts and data scientists is strong and is projected to increase, so the Data Innovation Hub will facilitate Work Integrated Learning at scale in the field of Data Analytics” she said.

“It’s a fantastic opportunity for our industry partners to connect with the next generation of digital innovators and leaders capable of driving industry transformations in a tech-rich world.”

RMIT continues to invest in new models of education and engagement to  accelerate the digital capabilities of students, staff, researchers and industry partners, and ultimately harness the power of digital technologies to develop solutions to complex world problems.
