Course summary

Overview

Develop the skills you need for a career in this fast emerging field of data science.

This programme will deepen your understanding of advanced software development, systems for big data analytics, statistical data analysis, data mining, data privacy and security, data visualisation and exploration.

It is an interdisciplinary programme, designed for students with a first degree in subjects such as:

  • Computer Science
  • Electrical Engineering
  • Mathematics
  • Physics
  • Economics

Our teaching is strongly linked to research within the Faculty of Engineering and Informatics, which includes aspects of applied computing, theoretical computer science, and communications and networks. Statistical analysis of data across various disciplines is a central theme of our research.

You can tailor your studies to particular areas of interest or career aspirations through our range of optional modules, and in the final dissertation (which is a significant piece of project work).

On graduation you’ll be ready and able to develop solutions to challenges in big data analytics and big data systems.

Learning and assessment

You'll learn through a mixture of formal lectures, practical lab sessions, tutorials and seminars.

Some modules involve supervised group work, usually with an assigned academic staff member for each group.

Most modules are related to research in the school.

All modules require students to undertake independent study, supported through distance learning technologies such as our Virtual Learning Environment. Reading lists and suggested resources for independent study provide further direction for students to undertake this work, and regular contact hours and informal feedback throughout the courses provide opportunities for further guidance for learners.

Assessments for modules mostly take the form of practical coursework, lab tests and written exams, with all forms being well represented across all modules.

Career prospects

Big data is a major area for future growth and investment. As the global big data industry continues to grow year after year we continue to grow our programme, and continue to produce future leaders in an exciting and rewarding field.
