Content

Our Data Science masters teaches the theory and skills for managing and analysing large, complex data sets – sometimes called Big Data. You’ll learn how to model, store and process these data sets using the latest algorithms and techniques. Modern methods and tools for visually exploring the data will also be covered. The MSc course offers the key skill set of a data scientist. Optional courses provide an opportunity to explore closely-related areas based on the internationally leading research work of our academics.

The skills you learn through the Data Science masters will be applicable to industrial applications, as well as to scientific data exploration. In some cases, the MSc project can also be carried out in collaboration with an outside industrial or academic organisation.

You can exit at the end of 9 months with PgDip Data Science.
