Content
The Data Science Research Project consists of 24 credit points and comprises CITS5011 Data Science Research Project Part 1, CITS5012 Data Science Research Project Part 2 and CITS5013 Data Science Research Project Part 3 that are taken over two consecutive semesters and must be completed to fulfill the requirements of the Data Science Research Project. Students can commence the units in either semester 1 or semester 2.

CITS5011 is Part 1 of the Master of Data Science Research Project and consists the completion of a research project proposal and a literature review. After completing CITS5011 (Part 1), students are able to continue their assessment by enrolling and completing CITS5012 (Part 2) and CITS5013 (Part 3) in their second semester of the project and includes the completion of a seminar presentation, a poster and a final research project report.

The research project topic may be chosen from a list of topics provided by the Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering or on a proposed topic relevant to Data Science and negotiated with the Project Supervisor. Students are expected to conduct qualitative research work or solve important data science research problems with certain research challenges.
Outcomes
Students are able to (1) execute research investigations to answer the research questions; (2) valuate existing ideas, algorithms, methodologies or solutions answering the same or
similar research questions; (3) justify the conclusions with systematic investigations and interpretations of results; and (4) communicate effectively in academic writing and oral presentation.
Assessment
Indicative assessments in this unit are as follows: continuing assessment. Further information is available in the unit outline.

Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit.

  • The availability of units in Semester 1, 2, etc. was correct at the time of publication but may be subject to change.
  • All students are responsible for identifying when they need assistance to improve their academic learning, research, English language and numeracy skills; seeking out the services and resources available to help them; and applying what they learn. Students are encouraged to register for free online support through GETSmart; to help themselves to the extensive range of resources on UWA's STUDYSmarter website; and to participate in WRITESmart and (ma+hs)Smart drop-ins and workshops.
  • Unit readings, including any essential textbooks, are listed in the unit outline for each unit, one week prior the commencement of study. The unit outline will be available via the LMS and the UWA Handbook one week prior the commencement of study. Reading lists and essential textbooks are subject to change each semester. Information on essential textbooks will also be made available on the Essential Textbooks. This website is updated regularly in the lead up to semester so content may change. It is recommended that students purchase essential textbooks for convenience due to the frequency with which they will be required during the unit. A limited number of textbooks will be made available from the Library in print and will also be made available online wherever possible. Essential textbooks can be purchased from the commercial vendors to secure the best deal. The Student Guild can provide assistance on where to purchase books if required. Books can be purchased second hand at the Guild Secondhand bookshop (second floor, Guild Village), which is located on campus.
