EMBARK ON A CAREER IN AUSTRALIA

According to CSIRO Data61, Australia’s leading data science research agency, the Australian industry is facing imminent and critical skills shortage in data science, machine learning and many other areas of digital technology. This presents a high potential employment opportunity for data science professionals.
