Postgraduate Information Evenings

Postgraduate Information Evenings are held throughout the year, and give you the opportunity to meet academic and professional staff as well as ask questions about courses, admission and fees. These evenings give you a better understanding of course content and delivery, what to expect from postgraduate study as well as career outcomes.

Our May 2019 Postgraduate Information Evenings will be running between Monday 6 May to Thursday 9 May at our Parramatta City Campus. If you are interested in attending, please register below.

Data Science at Western

Every industry benefits from the correct use of data, as it provides insights into their customers, business and environment. During this course you will learn about the various types of data, the extraction of relevant and meaningful data, as well as developing the analytical skills to turn this data into valuable insights. Throughout your studies you will learn how to efficiently identify trends, understand customers and predict behaviour, detect fraud, and identify credit risk.

Our Master of Data Science provides a strong applications focus, covering the nature of data, including Big Data and data driven investigations, as well as visual and computational analytics.

On completion of the course, you will have completed two self-guided master projects, and will graduate with the confidence and skills to draw out meaningful insights with actionable metrics.
