Course summary

The MSc by Research (Data Science) aims to bring together, in an interdisciplinary fashion, data science-related activities from across the University, centring on the core activities of machine-learning, visual analytics and data storage. These will work together to support applications-driven data scenarios. To support the interdisciplinary nature of this programme, you will have a core activity supervisor (machine learning, visual analytics), as well as a supervisor specialising in your chosen application area. This degree is an entirely research-based master's programme. The majority of your time will be spent working on your research project in the library, laboratories or elsewhere, under the direction of your supervisors. Alongside your independent study, you will also have tutorial lectures in the key areas of machine learning and visual analytics. You will have regular meetings with your supervisor to review progress and plan future activities. You may also spend brief periods at partner sites, for example where your project involves collaboration with industry.

This degree is specifically designed to equip graduates with the knowledge and skills required to fulfil large corporate data requirements, and allow you to progress to the post of data scientist. Data scientists are responsible for extracting understanding from large quantities of data, by building generalised models of trends within unstructured, heterogeneous 'big data'. Examining data from multiple sources, data scientists seek to explore patterns and discover trends, and translate these into insights and predictions which will support business decision-making, and solve business problems. Data scientists are sought after in a broad variety of sectors, including - but by no means limited to - healthcare, broadcast, security, education, and intelligent transport.
