New Master of Data Science coming to La Trobe University
La Trobe University are launching a new Masters degree this month, that will be open to international students from Semester 1 2017. The Master of Data Science degree will be a two-year programme with majors available in Bioinformatics, Big Data and Cloud Computing or Analytical Science.
The Master of Data Science is the ideal programme for any students of Computer Science, IT, and/or Mathematics and Statistics who are seeking a contemporary and rewarding career interpreting and making use of messy data. Studying this Masters, students will learn a unique combination of technical skills and real-world application.
Each major includes a set of core advanced subjects from computer science and mathematics/statistics disciplines and a number of specialised advanced subjects including big data high-performance programming, computational intelligence for analytics, cloud systems development, analysis of repeated measures data, meta-analysis, and bioinformatics technologies.
Applications for the 2017 intake will open later this year, with more information about the programme soon to become available on the La Trobe University website. Find out more about La Trobe University here, or contact Study Options for information about studying in Australia.
