Course summary

Why choose this course

Collecting, managing and analysing data is essential across many sectors – from finance to politics, and advertising to healthcare. This course will give you the advanced computation and mathematics skills you’ll need to work in the growing field of data science.

Designed in collaboration with industry and drawing on our leading research, our Data Science MSc will prepare you for a career as a data scientist, data analyst, data engineer, data architect or a business analyst.

This course uniquely addresses the fundamentals of data as well as the technical considerations needed to handle data with increasing scale and complexity.

What you will study

This course combines in-depth study of the theory and practice of data science with an optional year-long work placement, where you’ll get the chance to apply your knowledge to industry-relevant challenges. A placement also allows you to discover the business value of data-oriented research and development.

You can also customise this course with optional modules in information security, sensors and artificial intelligence.

Finally, you’ll complete a dissertation where you can further explore an area that interests you. This is particularly useful if you’re aiming to progress to a PhD.
