Initiative

Qualifying data scientists in the NT through Charles Darwin University (CDU) masters degree program.

Overview

Data scientists are in high demand in Australia. Local education options in this field have grown with the introduction of masters, graduate diploma and certificate programs in data science at CDU.

These new courses expand the suite of ICT qualifications available locally. CDU aims to grow the program to 36 students over four years.

Benefits

A well regarded data science program will enable CDU to attract more students, both local and international students that bring revenue to the NT.

Strengthening local ICT capability by developing qualified data scientists will enable value-add data analytics and high-end research to be conducted in the NT.
