re: internship?

Internship is not part of the curriculum.
Had to do a three month internship full time first though, no coy will take you with flexible hours if you are a fresh bird.
Where'd you intern at? Was it hard to find?

Looking online look like a lot of companies looking for R/Python/Scala experience leh...

Got it through a friend of a friend. Startup company.

Using node / python / php.

I went in with 0 experience, I think is all about your mentality. I self taught myself abit of php 1 week before going on the job, subsequently learnt python and node when required. Next project most likely either ruby or go, see how

I didn't rely on any books or anything. It's either being attached to a project or starting a new project entirely, so I just look at the scope of the project and figure it out from there.

I don't really know how to explain. It's easier to learn when you have a problem to solve, then you figure out how to solve the problem.

accreditation (big data)

hey guys fyi

just looked up the UOW accreditation on ACS
acs.org.au/cpd-education/accredited-courses.html

1. big data's not specifically mentioned as an accredited course (wonder what "no major" option [766] is)
2. accreditation for all SIM UOW programmes lasts from 2014-2019. Guessing got renew after that la, but still scary when you scroll down and see some never renew lol..

1.how does the fyp in DSS like?
There are total of 2 phase1, During phase 1, u will need to submit ur project proposal, documentations and create prototype for your system. During phase 2, you will be focusing more on the system itself.

2.is there a need to do internship?
There is internship. However, usually only the top scorer will be able to get in.

3.can i be excused from the attendance if i am called up for high key ICT (2 weeks)?

There is no attendance taking during FYP. Mostly is OTOT meet up with ur grp mates and supervisor. Attendance will be taken if there is briefing for FYP only
