Due to high demand, the September 2023 entry point for this programme has now closed to new international applications.
The MSc in Data Science gives you a solid grounding in data science concepts and technologies for extracting information and constructing knowledge from data.
This course focuses on three core technical themes of data mining, machine learning, and visualisation.
You study computational principles, methods, and systems for a variety of real-world applications that require mathematical foundations, programming skills, critical thinking, and ingenuity.
Our £32.5m Computational Foundry lies at the heart of this course. Sophisticated teaching and research equipment include a Vision and Biometric Lab, a Maker Lab, a Theory Lab, a Cyber Security/Networking Lab, a User Lab and a Visualisation Suite.
With large data sets now available across almost all industry sectors, there is an increasingly high demand for innovative new technologies and skilled data scientists.
