I chose to study the Master of Data Science and Innovation (MDSI) at UTS because it’s an area in continuous growth and I believe will contribute perfectly to my professional life. What makes this Masters unique is the fact that it goes beyond data science. The course also focuses on innovation, which in my opinion, is an essential skill for a data scientist.
The iLabs also had a significant effect on my decision to study this course, as it provides students with the chance to play the role of Data Scientist and solve real world problems.
So far, I am extremely satisfied with my decision of studying MDSI at UTS. The lectures are very interactive and dynamic. Being a transdisciplinary course you also have the opportunity to work with people from different backgrounds, which makes the group assessments very interesting. My goal in the future is to use the knowledge acquired in the Masters to work as a Data Scientist and assist companies to achieve better results by efficiently extracting the knowledge and insights from data.
