Summary

We are surrounded by data. The variety and amount we collect and store grows every day, from the simplest of retail transactions to the complex and intimate medical records of millions.

Why do we store data? Where do we store it? How do we retrieve it? What do we use it for?

There is an increasing demand for people who can manage and control the way data is used. These individuals require an understanding of computer science and mathematics, as well as a familiarity with the data needs and processes of a number of different areas, including healthcare, business, government and the environment.

The Data Science and Analytics Masters degree offers you the opportunity to develop a range of relevant skills including:

  • analysing structured and unstructured data

  • analysing large datasets

  • critically evaluating results in context

  • getting insights from data

The course combines expertise from the Schools of Computing, Geography and Mathematics with that of Leeds University Business School.

This collaboration allows you to benefit from a range of data science perspectives and applications, allowing you to tailor the course to match your own career ambitions.

Course highlights - Our courses are shaped by our leading research in areas such as probability and financial mathematics, modern applied statistics, and analysis.

  • Access to modern facilities and computing equipment throughout the school, complemented by social areas, communal problem-solving spaces and quiet study rooms

  • Benefit from the school’s close links with organisations like Leeds Institute for Data Analytics, Leeds Institute for Fluid Dynamics and the Alan Turing Institute

  • A diverse and supportive community of mathematicians from all over the world
