Course summary

Data science is rapidly emerging in organisations and the need for fully trained data scientists, analysts and programmers is in demand now more than ever. Businesses rely on big data to uncover hidden patterns and unknown correlations to make informed decisions and drive business success. On the Data Science course you will learn how to apply high level analytical skills and knowledge to solve a range of real-world problems.

The MSc Data Science is designed to support your development of transferable skills and expertise to play a leading role at a technical and practical level in the industry. Additionally, you will work towards a globally recognised qualification, the SAS Joint Certificate in Applied Statistics and Data Mining. The Joint Certificate will validate your skills and ability to use SAS software, giving you a competitive advantage in the job market.

We intend to deliver our courses in a blended format; with a proportion of the teaching and learning being delivered digitally, and where it is safe to do so, some teaching and learning being delivered in person and using social distancing and/or mitigating measures as deemed appropriate in line with government guidance.

Assessment

All modules are assessed entirely through coursework based activities ranging from reports, demonstrations, and presentations and coding tasks.

Careers

Employment prospects are strong in this rapidly growing and demanding industry. There are a number of careers available to those trained in data science - students could go on to be data scientists, statistics officers, business analysts, predictive modellers or computer programmers, these will continue to grow as organisations are required to adapt to improving technologies. Graduates may also progress on to a PhD or research degree.
