RMIT is committed to providing students with an education that strongly links formal learning with workplace experience.
The degree has strong links with the data science profession and related areas of business and industry, both in Australia and internationally.
You will be taught by academics with strong research backgrounds and links to industry, as well as sessional teachers, guest lecturers and leaders working in industry.
You will engage with industry through a work integrated-learning experience, which will enable you to learn, apply and demonstrate your knowledge and skills in a workplace setting (real or simulated) and receive feedback from those involved in your industry.
In your first year, you will undertake innovative programming boot camp and studio subjects.
In your second year, one of your subjects will include a work integrated learning experience, where you are assessed in a simulated workplace context, and receive feedback from industry.
In your third year, you will complete a capstone project, which will enable you to apply your data science knowledge to plan and execute a substantial research-based or industry-sponsored project.
