Applied Project (ANL588)


ANL588 Applied Project is an opportunity for students to apply the techniques and skills they have acquired during their tenure as a graduate diploma student in analytics and visualisation to an organisation-relevant digitalisation project meant to contribute towards the transformation efforts of the organisation the student is working in. The student is expected to identify a suitable digitalisation problem the organisation is facing, and then design and implement a full-analytics stack to acquire, transform, analyse, visualise, and report their findings as part of a scalable and reproducible workflow. The student is expected to present and defend their project at periodic checkpoints during this course.
