The Master of Data Science and Innovation now has a new home, relocating to the Faculty of Transdisciplinary Innovation. The links with CIC remain strong however, with our academics and PhD students continuing on the teaching team, and mentoring students in their iLab projects.
The new faculty, created last year to advance the UTS priority on transdisciplinary learning, teaching and research, provides a rich teaching and learning environment for the MDSI academics and students enrolled in the degree, as well as opportunities for interaction across the faculty with staff and students in the undergraduate transdisciplinary areas.
CIC developed the MDSI in 2014, in conjunction with disciplinary expertise drawn from across the University. It was designed from the outset as a truly transdisciplinary offering, recognising the importance of data and algorithms, but importantly, the human aspects driving decision-making. Over the past 3 years, MDSI students won numerous data science awards, the program graduated its first students and is widely recognised in industry as a leading data science degree.
CIC is sad to bid adieu to three of our pioneering academics who now join the new faculty, Director Theresa Anderson, Senior Lecturer Kailash Awati and Lecturer Simon Knight. But we’re very pleased to have an ongoing relationship with them and the program, and look forward to seeing it grow ever more successful!
