Undergraduate (your first degree)

An undergraduate degree is generally completed between two to four years, depending on the pattern of study and any credit for prior learning you may have. Associate degrees, bachelor’s and bachelor’s with honours are all undergraduate degrees.

Research

Higher Degrees by Research (supervised research)

Research degrees are research based master’s or PhD programs that focus on a single area of expertise. They provide students the opportunity to carry out highly specialised research under expert supervision.

We invite industry speakers to our classrooms to show our students what they can do with the knowledge of data analysis and optimisation in real life.
