About the course

Our Master's course is designed to meet the demand for a new kind of IT specialist with the skills and knowledge in data science.

The total demand in ‘big data’ users is set to rise to around 644,000 across all industries. More connectivity means more data and UK companies are leading the way in collecting, processing and understanding it. It’s estimated that 31,000 people work in specialist big data roles in the UK and the talent pipeline, together with demand, should see that increase by 243% over the next 5 years.*

In order to address these demands, given the large amount of data collected by all kinds of organisations, graduates of the course aims to equip graduates with an understanding of:

  • statistics
  • data mining techniques
  • big data and associated file systems
  • complex data visualisation

Our aim is for you to graduate from this course with the ability to combine this knowledge to provide solutions to relevant stakeholders to improve their decision making process based on novel solutions proposed by analysing and visualising complex datasets.

The course seeks to develop the ability to critically evaluate existing and emerging Data Science technology, apply knowledge, understanding and analytical and design skills in support of analytical and big data problems.
