Course summary

MSc Data Science will give you the skills to develop and apply advanced data science tools and techniques. You'll learn to process large, complex datasets, and extract valuable insights to inform business decision-making.

Data science, especially when paired with artificial intelligence, promises to provide the tools to enhance technology, business models and decision-making across a range of sectors, from industrial automation, manufacturing, transport, banking and cyber security to health and social care.

By working on real-world datasets and industry-simulated projects, you'll become proficient in advanced data science tools and techniques, such as data engineering and deep learning.

Our Master’s degree has been designed with, and is co-delivered by, Cambridge Spark – leaders in personalised AI-driven training in data science and software engineering. You'll study online via digital learning management systems and attend a two-week hackathon-style bootcamp on our campus in Cambridge.


We'll assess you in several ways including time-constrained assessments, coursework assignments and a project.

Our dissertation project and module case studies assess your ability to analyse situations, identify key issues, select, synthesise and apply techniques and skills from different modules, and evaluate the appropriateness of solutions when compared to industrial practice.

The dissertation artefact will be based on a real-world scenario related to, or part of, a piece of project work in a company.


Data scientist roles have grown over 650% since 2012, with machine learning engineers, data scientists, and big data engineers ranking among the top emerging jobs*. But there's a recognised skills gap both in the UK and internationally.

Employers highlight the importance of data science and its potential to revolutionise several industries, while creating significant employment opportunities for data analysts, machine learning specialists and data specialists.
