Course summary

Why study this course?

On our Data Analytics MSc you'll be introduced to subjects including data mining, statistical modelling, business intelligence and data visualisation. The course has been developed with direct input from industry experts who’ll present you with real-life business cases as part of your work-related learning. By the end of the MSc degree, you’ll be ready to apply for rewarding roles in the data science and big data industries, as well as the many sectors and organisations that increasingly require data analysts.

Our Data Analytics MSc degree has been accredited with partial CITP status by BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT. This accreditation is a mark of assurance that the degree meets the standards set by BCS. As a graduate of this course, accreditation will also entitle you to professional membership of BCS, which is an important part of the criteria for achieving Chartered IT Professional (CITP) status through the Institute.

The course has also achieved partial CENG status by BCS on behalf of the Engineering Council. Accreditation is a mark of assurance that the degree meets the standards set by the Engineering Council in the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC). An accredited degree will provide you with some or all of the underpinning knowledge, understanding and skills for eventual registration as an Incorporated (IEng) or Chartered Engineer (CEng).

Some employers recruit preferentially from accredited degrees, and an accredited degree is likely to be recognised by other countries that are signatories to international accords.

The course can also prepare you for the industry-recognised Oracle Professional Certification.
