Course summary


This course aims to support students, from both STEM and non-STEM disciplines by providing those without prior experience, the foundations of areas such as programming and mathematics, so that all students can then progress to more advanced areas such as Machine Learning, Data Analytics, Visualisation, Cloud Computing, the “Internet of Things” and Intelligent Systems. During the course, students will also further develop their academic and professional skills and get the chance to work with other students and external organisations to make real interdisciplinary and societal impact in taught modules, an A.I. and Data Science ambassador scheme and as part of an industrial project/placement.


You will be taught in dedicated teaching and laboratory space equipped with cutting edge computer systems. We also have a MakerSpace, a multi-purpose research lab equipped with a variety of robots and aVicon motion-tracking system, a Gaming Lab and a perception lab with state-of-the-art virtual reality equipment. You will also have the opportunity to access data and systems from current research projects such as the Smart Energy Network Demonstrator (SEND) and to visit the Horwood Energy Centre on the Keele campus, the control room for SEND. You will have interactive lectures delivered by academic staff who are experts in the relevant area, as well as tutorial and practical sessions. The course uses a variety of innovative learning tools and methods including working with real clients and problems. This gives students experience and skills they can apply directly to their career and jobs in the future.

Small group teaching is central to how we deliver the course and our staff and students are able to very quickly create supportive working relationships both in person and online. Each module in the first semester is taught intensively over 6-week periods. This means that you will be able to learn the key competencies and skills very quickly. This is particularly important for students who do not have previous experience of studying Computer Science or Maths. In the second semester each module is taught over a 12-week semester. Here, you will study more advanced topics and put the key skills you have learned in semester one into practice. On average you will have around sixteen hours of lectures and practicals each week. Alongside this you will be expected to work independently on exercises and coursework projects, as well as researching course topics online and via the University library.


Through our close collaboration with industrial partners, we continually seek to ensure that the MSc in A.I. and Data Science gives our students appropriate technical skills and knowledge - as well as the consultancy, team and project management skills that are required for success in careers where A.I. and Data Science are being developed or used. The University has a Careers and Employability team who can provide you with advice and guidance about your future career. The team offers specialist workshops, for example 'Options with Postgraduate Study' and Moving on with your PhD', and can also meet you individually to give guidance and support to help you develop your career. We also hold regular careers fairs on campus and informal events where you can meet employers. You will also have access to our database of job opportunities and digital resources such as online psychometric testing.
