Globally, the need for data scientists has grown at a faster rate than those qualified with the required skills. Professionals with the right expertise in data analytics use cutting edge technologies to turn data into valuable knowledge.

By studying this Master’s Programme, you will be perfectly positioned to meet this demand.

This will be enhanced by developing your knowledge of interdisciplinary skills and statistics, software programming, and using modern data analysis and visualisation technologies.
