MSc Data Science - new course launch

The School of Computer Science and the School of Mathematical Sciences are launching MSc Data Science, a new postgraduate taught course.

This interdisciplinary course will take expertise from both schools so students can study advanced computational and mathematical skills to tackle increasingly complex data analysis tasks. Course content will help students devise methods for analysing, presenting, and deriving insights from large data sets.

It is suited to anyone with a computer science or mathematical undergraduate degree. Depending on your academic background, the course offers different pathways. Topics covered may include:

  • statistical modelling and inference
  • uncertainty quantification
  • multivariate statistics
  • time-series and forecasting
  • machine learning
  • advanced algorithms and data structures
  • data modelling and analysis
  • simulations and optimisation for decision support
  • parallel and distributed computing
  • programming

Applications are open now for September 2019.
