Graduate Taught (level 9 nfq, credits 20)
The MSc and Professional Diploma in Data Analytics from the UCD School of Mathematics and Statistics will help you to analyse and understand the large data sets that are being created via the huge growth in online information. The value of these data sets is being increasingly recognised in business circles, with many companies seeking to recruit individuals with skills in data analytics to extract the valuable insights contained therein. Data Analytics is at the crossroads between statistics and computer science, and our courses contain elements of both. We will give you the tools to apply advanced skills from these fields to maximum effect in any work-related, "big data", environment. There are no lectures to attend as the courses are delivered completely online. Students will attend UCD at the end of each semester for exams.
For detailed information about the programme see: programme website.
There is a huge ongoing growth in demand for graduates with these valuable skills in a wide range of industries, and currently a shortage of qualified graduates.
Students will be given videos, online demonstrations, and interactive games to enhance their learning, with regular feedback and interaction via course tutors through the UCD website
