Course summary

Overview

The MSc Data Science and Artificial Intelligence is a conversion master's, designed for students who have a first degree in a subject other than Computer Science (or a subject closely related to Computer Science), who wish to develop their knowledge and skills to start a career in the Data Science and Artificial Intelligence Industry. The course has been developed in close collaboration with a number of commercial partners including IBM to meet the skills gaps in this growing employment area.

The two-year MSc programme shares the same taught modules with its one-year equivalent. However, unlike the one-year MSc which includes an MSc project over the summer, the two-year programme includes an industrial project and placement in year two (either in the UK or overseas). The placement is typically 30 weeks from September to June.

This opportunity to work in industry will help you strengthen your career options by:

  • Undertaking the project work in an industrial setting
  • Applying theory learnt in the classroom to real-world practice
  • Developing communications and interpersonal skills Building networks and knowledge which will be invaluable throughout your career.

During the placement year you will spend time working in a relevant company suitable for the MSc. This is an excellent opportunity to gain practical engineering experience which will boost your CV, build networks and develop confidence in a working environment. Many placement students continue their relationship with the placement provider by undertaking relevant projects and may ultimately return to work for the company when they graduate.

Career prospects

There is a well documented global shortage of Data Science and Artificial Intelligence practitioners. Employment opportunities within this field far outstrip supply.

The MSc Data Science and Artificial Intelligence addresses this skills gap by providing graduates with employment opportunities across the sector with a particular focus on, but not limited to, career opportunities within the field of Data Science and Artificial Intelligence. This includes interdisciplinary opportunities, by coupling knowledge of Data Science and Artificial Intelligence with the knowledge that graduates have acquired from their first degree.
