As a leading university-based data science institute, we offer comprehensive end-to-end project management across the life cycle of your data science or research software development project.
We are an interdisciplinary knowledge accelerator. Our aim is to apply data science and high-performance computing to collaboratively provide innovative solutions for real-world problems.
We have a dedicated team of specialists who are highly trained in data science, high-performance computing, software development and project coordination. Learn more about our team.
Book a Technical Expert
‘Book a Technical Expert’ is a service provided by the Curtin Institute for Data Science for Curtin staff and students every Tuesday from 3:00 – 4:00 pm. They are held in person and virtually (if requested), and are a great opportunity to network with our friendly team.
Accelerating Knowledge through Data Science
The Institute supports a growing network of SMEs, external organisations, government departments, researchers, co-operative research centres, and not-for-profits across various sectors such as, but not limited to, health sciences, manufacturing, transport, art and culture, astronomy, agriculture, and aquaculture.
As a university-based research institute, the Curtin Institute for Data Science has extensive experience in supporting researchers with their research projects. We have either led or collaborated on more than 60 research projects, spanning health sciences, humanities, business & law and science & engineering. We currently offer nine specialist services, as detailed below.
Machine Learning & AI
We have experience in the development of machine learning models and other predictive analytics in a variety of domains.
We have extensive experience in the development of all forms of data analytics from descriptive, diagnostic, to predictive.
We have experience in a range of HPC solutions ranging from the use of our in-house HPC system to national research facilities such as the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre and the National Computational Infrastructure to commercial virtual machines and cloud based solutions such as AWS and Microsoft Azure.
As an end-to-end solution provider, we routinely offer data engineering and data wrangling expertise to prepare data for advanced analysis and AI initiatives.
Research Software Development
We have over 10 professional in-house research software developers with expertise in an array of languages, environments, and applications which can be used as a stand alone resource, in in conjunction with the wider data science offering.
Training & Education
We run training in software carpentry, coding, and general computational literacy and are available to scope and provide bespoke training in areas associated with our expertise.
Visualisation & Simulation
We have expertise in a range of visualisation solutions from dashboards to digital twins. We can provide bespoke visualisations or work with existing tools and systems to embedded or enhances new data displays.
Modelling & Optimisation
We have expertise in physical system modelling and work closely with the Center for Optimisation and Decision Science to provide mathematical modelling and algorithms for problems across mining, energy, logistics, agriculture, and manufacturing.
Project Scoping & Management
We have a dedicated Project Management Office within the Institute that support and manage projects including full end-to-end project lifecycle management.
