As the amount of data available to organisations grows, the science of gaining insights from this data grows with it. Industry, research institutions and governments seek to extract value from data to improve products and services, serve their customers better, and run more operationally efficient organisations. This creates a growing need for skilled Data Scientists who use their mathematical, computational and presentational skills to mine data for value. This MSc Data Science and Analytics degree will give you an essential understanding of the methods, tools and techniques you will use in your career as a Data Scientist and provide you with opportunities to apply your theoretical knowledge in practical situations. You will complete a range of project work on this course to prepare you for the workplace. You will link your theoretical learning to real-world scenarios across a range of industry and government sectors and have the opportunity to decide the methods and tools best suited to the project based on your previous learning. The course may be for you if you are:
- a mathematics graduate who wants to use your skills in a vocational, business based environment
- a computer science graduate wishing to follow a vocational route
- an individual currently working in business and looking to grow your career through gaining Data Science and Business Analytics skills.
- This course was designed in consultation with industry partners to ensure it reflects the current needs of businesses. The course focuses on the skills and experiences businesses need in their employees.
The programme’s content emphasises practice (based on theory), which is underpinned by industry style projects and a focus on practical assessment tasks. You will study a selection of core modules in each year. Each module is worth a number of credits and is delivered differently, depending on its content and focus of study.
This course uses interactive lectures, self-learning, workshops and hands-on projects. You will be assigned an Academic Advisor from the start of your course who will work with you throughout your studies to help you reach your academic potential.
