This programme is aimed at students who wish to diversify into a career in data analytics and related disciplines. You will be introduced to, and develop skills in, the theories and technologies that are fuelling the data-driven approach to business. The programme enables students to solve practical real world business orientated data problems, using a variety of analytical methods and software tools. Students are encouraged to develop skills for analysing data sets and to be autonomous learners who have a creative and critical approach to data analytics.
This online conversion course is for graduates of level 8 programmes in disciplines other than computing. On-line learning is a key feature of the programme, and we provide online videos and discussion boards, augmented by individual feedback from lecturers. Modules are assessed using a variety of tools including online assessment and project work to examine data analytics skills.
The programme is delivered through blended learning and can be taken from anywhere in the country. A number of optional on campus workshops will take place each term where students will receive lectures from experienced lecturers and data analysts and participate in specially-designed workshops.
