The experience

Overview

Getting you career ready

The capstone project of the Master of Data science gives you a chance to prove that you’re ready to enter the workforce as a data science professional.

You’ll take what you’ve learned during the degree and use it to tackle a practical data science question. The question might relate to science, industry, commerce or society generally.

By presenting technically correct results in a client-ready format, you’ll showcase what you have to offer future employers.

Be part of an international community

As a Masters student you’ll mingle regularly with eminent researchers from the University of Melbourne and beyond at our seminars.

You’ll benefit from close proximity to these important research centres and organisations – all located on campus:

Get involved with the Melbourne University Mathematics and Statistics Society and the Statistics and Mathematics Postgraduate Society to network with other students with similar interests.

Career connections

Events that connect students with industry and other employers are held throughout the year. You’ll have the opportunity to network with and learn from professionals in your field.

We also offer students the STEM Industry Mentoring Program and the Job Ready short course – helping develop your communication skills and employability.

Volunteering

While you’re studying with us, why not take advantage of the many opportunities available for you to get involved with volunteering to extend your learning opportunities, connect with communities, and enhance your employability. One opportunity for volunteering is through the Science Student Ambassadors program.

Stay in touch with newsletters

We keep all graduate students up to date with a monthly e-newsletter, packed with news on events, scholarships, jobs opportunities, study tips and more.

Study abroad

To add a global experience to your degree, consider studying overseas. The optional industry internship subject can also be completed overseas.
