There has been a huge increase in demand for data and computational specialists across almost every industry, from energy and manufacturing to retail, healthcare and cyber security. As the volume, diversity and complexity of data available continue to increase, the key challenge facing organisations today is unlocking their data to inform business decisions.
Discussions with our industry partners have also shown that there is a substantial demand for data scientists who are proficient with a wide range of statistical and data analysis tools, but who can go beyond classical statistics and machine learning to gain real insights from data.
The MSc Data Science is designed to address this challenge, by equipping students from across a wide range of academic backgrounds, including science, technology, engineering and medicine (STEM), but also business, arts and social sciences, with the specialist Computational Thinking (CT) and data analysis skills needed to extract knowledge and insights from data.
This programme has been designed in collaboration with industry partners, including Wolfram Research, to ensure that the algorithms, tools and workflows required by industry are covered. You will also gain proficiency in the use of Wolfram Mathematica programme.
The overall objective of this programme is to create experts who can combine their mathematical modelling and programming skills with an ability to work effectively in multidisciplinary teams. This programme is aimed at undergraduate students from a wide range of academic backgrounds, including science, technology, engineering and medicine (STEM) but also business, arts and the humanities.
