Almost everything we do results in data being created and stored somewhere. Individuals, communities, business and governments face major challenges in harnessing all this data to create knowledge that will underpin a healthier, safer, more productive world. There is a global shortage of talent and expertise in data analytics and data science. This MSc and Diploma programme will provide graduates of computing or related degrees with the deep technical knowledge and analytical skills to succeed in this growth area.
Applications may apply for the following programme options:
• One-year MSc full-time (GYE06)
• One-year Diploma (GY27)
• Two-year MSc part-time (GYE07)
The MSc option is an 90-ECTS course with three main elements: foundational modules (20 ECTS), advanced modules (40 ECTS), and a substantial capstone project (30 ECTS). Students taking the two-year part-time option will undertake a larger capstone project (40 ECTS) and take 10 ECTS less in taught module.
The one-year part-time Diploma in Computer Science (Data Analytics) is a 30 ECTS programme. Diploma students will be eligible to progress to the second year of the part-time MSc if they achieve a minimum of a 2.1 in the diploma year. Career Opportunities Graduates will be excellently qualified to pursue new career opportunities in industry, to establish new ventures or do PhD-level research.
