Reviews

A very interesting subject that covers a lot of interesting content, but honestly one of the worst-run subjects i've taken. It's basically self-learning based off slides and workshop questions. That said, not impossible to do well in, particularly if you've already looked at things like web scrapers, or if you enjoy self-learning, but the amount of support provided is not what you'd expect from a university subject.

Very cool and interesting content but badly taught.

The coordination of the subject is so terrible that I cannot believe this is a university-level course. This subject alone is definitely responsible for unimelb's dropped global ranking this year, what a f**king joke m8. I suggest avoiding this subject at all cost even if it's a prerequisite (You can probably try to get a prerequisite waiver).

The content of this subject is ok, but the teaching process and some of lecturers and tutors are sucks. They do not teach anything in depth and expect you to learn all the stuffs by yourself.

The subject and its teachers, its content is absolutely useless towards assignments. They don't teach you how to do the assignment and expect you to learn from google and outdated questions on stackoverflow. Tutors and teachers don't help, only stating to "use common sense" and that by forcing us to self learn it is "preparing us for the world". I did not go to uni to use stack overflow and scrolling through page 12 of google to learn how to do something that isnt taught. Will not recommend unless you enjoy learning with no help or advice.

Nothing is taught in depth so you are forced to spend twice as much time studying compared to other subjects. Could be a great subject but there is lots of self-learning and a lack of clear structure leading to ambiguity which is frustrating as a student.

This subject is now revised, and is completely different from before. New topics include ML basics, web scraping as well as clustering algorithms. I would very strongly recommend this subject and it's new very practical components for computer science / data science majors!

This subject is quite practical and useful, and the content is pretty interesting. The group assignment and the final presentation were pretty manageable if you find good group mates. I personally didn’t like the lecture slides and felt that there was a lot of self-learning to do for the subject.

This subject is certainly no longer the train wreck described in previous reviews. Content is fairly well presented and the lecturers are good. Like some other computing subjects this is a bit of a patchwork subject - a bunch of different topics that aren't really all that intimately related stitched together. Data processing/visualisation/analysis is the primary focus, but blockchain, privacy and ethics are all touched on as well. I personally prefer subjects that get their hands dirty specialising in a single topic, but I respect the need for subjects like elements, especially at a 2nd year level when the subject needs to act as a foundation to direct further study and subject choices.

A lot of concepts and content are covered in a very short amount of time - if you're not doing extra research/reading it feels like you're not really learning much. The lack of structure in the lectures doesn't help either. My tutor was quite bad and the content covered in the workshops doesn't reinforce what you learn in lectures all that much.
