An in-depth project and dissertation on a specialised research topic are necessary to prepare graduates for further research, applications and responsible jobs in Computer Science, Applied Data Science, Mathematics, Statistics, Science, or Counselling. This course, in conjunction with MSC8001, enables students to develop and use research capability and an advanced level of Computer Science, Data Science, Counselling, Mathematics, Statistics or Science skills.
This course forms the final part of the research component of the Masters programs in the health, Engineering and Science Faculty. From the foundation established in MSC8001, students will complete a selected project in Computer Science, Counselling, Applied Data Science, Mathematics, Statistics or Science with the supervision of appropriate staff from the Faculty. The project will consist of reviewing, researching into and reporting of a specific area in the student's specialisation and exploring possible applications of knowledge and skills from that area.
Course learning outcomes
On successful completion of this course students should be able to:
