Summary

MSc Data Science is an inter-disciplinary course aimed at students wishing to work in data science – a field with almost limitless career potential. Teaching covers the fundamental mathematical and computational techniques used to deliver insights and understand phenomena extracted from data sources. Building upon your existing coding skills you will handle complex data sets, learning multiple methods of analysis and efficient approaches to visualisation and presentation.

As well as specific applications including network analysis, text analysis and machine vision you will study social contexts, governance and ethical considerations.

Your project allows you to develop skills in an area of interest, pursuing your ideas while guided by an academic supervisor.
