The Master of Data Science is a conversion program designed for students who wish to develop new skills in the growing area of data science, with a specific focus on large-scale data analysis, or *big data. *In this program, students undertake a variety of core and elective courses, designed to combine skills in computer science, mathematics, data science and data science analysis, as well as a significant project designed to combined skills developed across the program.

The program provides the necessary skills for entering the world of Big Data and Data Science, an emerging area of necessity for many fields, including Science, Engineering, Economics and Digital Humanities. The program will help learners understand how data is changing our world, and how learners can apply data science techniques to drive changes in their organisation or area. The program will provide an introduction to emerging field of data, and introduce fundamental analysis techniques, explored through a range of case studies, gaining deeper knowledge of relevant computational and mathematical techniques, such as machine learning and data mining.

The Master of Data Science is an AQF Level 9 Qualification with a standard full-time duration of 2 years.
