Course summary

This recently revised programme is designed for computationally and mathematically literate graduates wishing to pursue an in-depth study of modern approaches to information science. Emphasis is placed both on current industry practice and theory, and on data science methods and likely future trends in artificial intelligence, thus equipping graduates with the knowledge and skills necessary for a wide range of career paths in information-related fields. tudents will learn a variety of topics related to information science theory and practice with emphasis on computational methods, data science and artificial intelligence. The programme is a roughly even mix of optional and core modules, followed by a term-three dissertation designed to train students in the research skills necessary for careers in academia and the higher echelons of industry.

Careers

The MSc in Information Science prepares students for technical and management roles in the information and information technology industries, as well as for research careers in academia. Recent graduates have subsequently followed careers in a wide variety of roles in the information sector, including information systems management, web management, information architecture, knowledge-based systems, information security and governance, e-commerce, finance/fintech, data analytics and data science. Others have gone on to undertake PhDs in topics and subject areas encountered on the programme.

Employability

This programme equips students with the technical, theoretical and research skills to adapt to a rapidly changing information-based society, and also challenges students to think deeply about the implications of modern information technologies on individuals, society and industry. Specific skills acquired include data analysis, knowledge engineering, data modelling, knowledge representation, database design, management and implementation, ontology and linked data design, and web-based programming.
