Data can provide insights to shape decision-making, power scientific innovation, improve business operations or inform government policy. But it takes state-of-the-art statistical and computational methods to unlock that power. Our MSc Data Science course lets you master those methods.
On this data science masters, we'll equip you with the knowledge and skills to acquire, curate, manage and analyse data for solving real-world problems. You will gain essential, transferable computational and statistical thinking skills to create and deploy data-driven products and knowledge. And you'll look at ways to solve challenges in a range of potential, data-rich, application domains, such as health, climate, transportation and sales.
You will have the flexibility to set the direction for your postgraduate studies with a masters project of your own design. While you'll have the one-to-one support of your supervisor, it's a solo project - as much about developing computing skills as it is about building confidence and autonomy, vital skills for the workplace.
We'll help you put the technical skills into a real-world, professional context - helping you communicate your findings in the workplace, and address any of the legal or ethical questions that come with data processing.
Whether you plan to continue your studies onto PhD level or you're looking ahead to a career as a data scientist, data architect, database developer or big data analyst, this masters degree in data science can pave the way.
