MSc Data Science

Data science skills are now in huge demand both within the academic community, and across many areas of the economy from the pharmaceutical industry to e-commerce, media and marketing.

This course will equip you with the skills needed for data science roles, and to be agile enough to adapt to new fields and challenges as economic and scientific demands change.

You'll concentrate on the skills which data scientists apply on a daily basis to perform data analyses and to rigorously evaluate the results of those analyses, rather than focussing on theoretical bases or algorithmic structure. This approach will equip you with the skills to succeed even if you don't come from such a formal mathematical or computational background.
