University of South Australia to offer new Masters’ programs in Data Science and Sustainable Energy Systems
Starting this September, two new joint Masters’ programs will commence at the University of South Australia (UniSA). The Master of Science in Data Science (International) and the Master of Science in Sustainable Energy Systems are programs that are building on UniSA’s strong partnership with the University College London.
According to the announcement made by UniSA, successful applicants of the two international postgraduate programs can be studying in London this year. Students who enter the program will have the advantage of obtaining a joint Masters’ degree from both the University of South Australia and the University College London.
The UniSA Pro Vice Chancellor: IT, Engineering and the Environment Professor Simon Beecham said that the new offerings will give masters students a remarkable opportunity to gain international perspectives in their field of study.
He explained that both of the programs would provide the students with the opportunity to learn from experts with broad international experience. Not only that, but the students will also gain industry experience in two countries.
The most important aspect that the student of each program will gain is to learn in an industry context, maximising the strong engagement that both universities have with industry. The students will be able to learn through relevant placements and projects during their studies or through a curriculum deeply informed by industry realities and challenges.
Prof Beecham added that the programs offer a unique opportunity for Australian students to look at those challenges through a new lens, in the context of the European market and the changes that Britain’s exit from the EU will mean for business and development both in data science and sustainable energy.
The UCL Dean of Faculty of Engineering Sciences Professor Nigel Titchener-Hooker said he is delighted to see the flourishing of the partnership with UniSA and how it is providing international opportunities for students.
Prof Titchener-Hooker discussed how the world is completely transformed by globalisation and it would be an enormous advantage for any graduate to have studied across cultures and continents.
He added that this teaching collaboration will offer students not only two excellent engineering programs, but also access to industry-engaged projects in two different business environments, working on energy and data science problems in the context of different environments. This opportunity is the real asset.
For the Master of Science in Data Science (International) course, the student will spend the first eight months of the degree in London, and then they will transition to Adelaide to complete the remainder of the program. At UCL, the student may choose from a range of advanced computer science topics including data mining, machine vision and deep learning. At UniSA, the student will be able to develop skills in advanced analytics and data visualisation.
The Master of Science in Sustainable Energy Systems is an 18-month program designed to provide the student with a rigorous and comprehensive understanding of contemporary theory and practice, in the sustainable management of the global energy industry.
What’s a Rich Text element?
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
Static and dynamic content editing
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
