Course Summary

This course provides a professional and popular postgraduate programme of study that develops in students a critical appreciation of data science and the use of software to analyse and synthesise data. Data Science or "Big Data" has never been more important. Modern computing systems and software have allowed greater insights to be garnered from very larger data sets and to provide actionable information. Graduates from this course will be equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge to develop and manage data science systems, thus enabling students to enhance their existing skills in anticipation of meeting the increasing commercial demand in this area.

Assessments take the form of examinations (seen/unseen, open book, essays/short answers), essays, practical assessments, presentations, role-plays, individual and group reports, and a dissertation or a developmental project. Graduates will typically pursue careers as data analysts, IT consultants and managers in the business in addition to a range of posts involving the analysis of data. The programme also gives students a range of computing skills that could be applied to any role within the fields of business and computing. Students can exit at Postgraduate Certificate and Postgraduate Diploma levels.
