Water Research Australia’s Research Leadership Program is excited to announce that our popular Data Science for Water Professionals online training will return in 2023.

Water and data science specialist Dr Peter Prevos will once again guide participants through tailored workshops, designed to equip learners with the basics of data science using the R language to analyse water management problems. The skills learned will be fully transferable to other data science languages, such as Python or Julia.

Participants will have the opportunity for a hands-on approach to using practical examples of water quality, customer experience, and smart metering from the water industry to help develop and demonstrate skills to undertake complex data analysis and visualisation.

The workshop has been designed in two stages, Level 1 for beginners who want to understand the foundations of practical data science; and Level 2 will build upon and expand skills to create value from data. All workshop sessions consist of theory, examples, and a real-world case study from a water utility.

The Data Science for Water Professionals workshops consist of two live and interactive 3-hour sessions, one week apart.

Level 1: 7th and 14th March
Level 2: 21st and 28th March

1 – 4 PM Sydney Time


Registrations for Level 1 and Level 2 will open on Wednesday February 1st, 2023. For further enquiries please contact WaterRA’s Research Capability Manager Carolyn Bellamy.
