Data Science Finishing School for Graduates

A 6 months paid finishing school for graduates that include 2 months of intensive data science enablement and mentorship with experienced data scientist and a possible placement with Data Star’s industry partners. Driven by ASEAN Data Analytics eXchange or ADAX, Data Star is an MDEC initiative in partnership with The Center of Applied Data Science, universities and leading industry partners championing the development of industry ready Data Professionals in Malaysia.

Learning Paths

We have curated our learning paths in line with the Data Professional Skills Framework to support data and analytics knowledge development focused on 3 areas: data engineer, data analyst and data scientist.


We provide the students with the foundation skill sets for each of the knowledge areas. Our courses include lectures and lab sessions, hands-on programming and interactive learning! Each path includes an opportunity for mentorship, project presentation and soft skill development.

Enterprise Data Engineer

The objective of the course is to enable the participants to understand the importance of data management and to realise the value from the organisation’s data. Basic knowledge of programming is a pre-requisite for this course as the focus will be on database administrators who want to broaden their activity towards the whole data life-cycle.

Enterprise Data Analyst

The goal of the course is to equip the participants with the ability to set-up and run analysis using R, analyse data correctly, communicate and visualise findings well. Participants will also be taught to extract insights and knowledge from data. The course is aimed at students with little or no experience in analysis but with grounding of maths.

Enterprise Data Scientist

The EDS course is a practical fast-paced hands-on training for participants to explore the interdisciplinary field of data science. The course teaches participants how to think in a data-scientific way, conduct or approximate experiments on business activity, analyse data rigorously, develop predictive models and monitoring model outputs.
