Course summary

Our MSc Data Science programme is designed by the School of Computer science and the School of Mathematical Sciences to provide students with advanced computational and mathematical skills to tackle increasingly complex data analysis tasks and devise methods for analysing, presenting, and deriving insights from large data sets. The course aims to bring you to the forefront of research and application methods, equipping you to take leading roles with demands of principled and theoretically sound approaches to problem solving by leveraging state-of-the-art computation techniques. Opportunities for data driven innovation have been broadly recognised by industry, public sector and different scientific fields. As a data scientist, you will be able to work on a wide range of problems, analysing complex and diverse collections of data. This course offers multiple pathways, preparing you for a highly skills career in industry or research. The subjects you will cover reflect the ongoing research and practices in data analytics and computation undertaken at both schools: statistical modelling and inference; uncertainty quantification; multivariate statistics; time-series and forecasting; machine learning; advanced algorithms and data structures;data modelling and analysis; simulations and optimisation for decision support; parallel and distributed computing; programming. This course prepares its students for careers in advanced software development, particularly where reliability and efficiency are vital requirements. Its graduates are likely to assume leading roles in major software-development projects in one of the areas of specialisation. This course also provides an excellent foundation for further study and you may decide to progress to a PhD in order to continue your research.
