The Data Science Capstone project unit provides an opportunity for high-achieving students (WAM of 75+) to carry out an individual defined piece of work with academics of our school. The students will acquire skills including the capacity to define a project, show how it relates to existing work, and carry out the project in a systematic manner. Students will apply their gained knowledge of units of study in the data science domain (MDS). The results will be presented in a final project presentation and report. The unit aims to provide students with the opportunity to carry out an advanced project work in a setting and manner that fosters the development of data science skills in research or design.
Refer to the assessment table in the unit outline.
Students are required to source for a project and an academic supervisor prior to enrolment.
A candidate for the MDS who has completed 24 credit points from Core or Elective units of study, and has a WAM of 75+ may take this unit.Prohibitions
