Computing and IT and Statistics

Open University in Scotland

Content

This is one of several subject combinations available in our Certificate of Higher Education in Computing & IT and a second subject (T13) – you’ll divide your time equally between the two subjects. You will be introduced to probability and the most common methods of statistical data analysis, and you will explore the profound technological, economic, political and ethical change driven by digital technologies. With basic competence in statistics and computing skills, you will be prepared for further study to equip you to work in organisations that base decisions on statistical analysis or seek to interpret “big data”.
