Course summary

If you're looking to specialise or upskill in this field, this master's will equip you to apply data science techniques in your current role and organisation, or to progress onto new work opportunities. Looking at the full data science pipeline, you'll learn to understand organisational requirements and ethical conduct; design research studies; and employ data engineering skills to gather, transform and clean small and large-scale data. Gain the skills and tools to design and implement data science projects and programmes to solve real business and societal issues. Undertake exploratory analysis, using statistics, machine learning and predictive modelling. Present and communicate results to stakeholders, and become adept at implementing production workflows and solutions. You'll work on live data science projects, using data and issues from your own company (if applicable) and those of our industrial partners. The course has been developed as part of the Institute of Coding's University Learners employability initiative, to ensure it equips data scientists with the skills needed by industry. Your newly-acquired skills will set you up well for work as a data scientist, business analyst, data engineer or chief data officer.
