Course summary

Over the last decade, there has been a huge increase in the amount of data generated from various fields, and the volume, diversity, and complexity of this data continues to increase dramatically. Organisations of all sizes are now facing a key challenge - how to make sense of this data and how to use it to inform business decisions. The MSc Data Science and Applied Analytics programme aims to develop graduates who understand relevant approaches to designing data science tools, their implementation and evaluation, analytical aspects of big data, and their meaning and importance to both businesses and the public sector.

Assessment method

The programme is assessed through a variety of means, including in-class tests, coursework, presentation, posters, and examinations. The majority of assessments are coursework based, reflecting the practical and applied nature of computer science. The final stage project enables students to further specialise and complete a piece of work of significant complexity. The University of Lincoln's policy on assessment feedback aims to ensure that academics will return in-course assessments to students promptly usually within 15 working days of the submission date.
