About

The Data Science and Analytics course from University of Leeds combines expertise from the Schools of Computing, Geography and Mathematics with that of Leeds University Business School.

Overview

We are surrounded by data. The variety and amount we collect and store grows every day, from the simplest of retail transactions to the complex and intimate medical records of millions.

Why do we store data? Where do we store it? How do we retrieve it? What do we use it for?

There is an increasing demand for people who can manage and control the way data is used. These individuals require an understanding of computer science and mathematics, as well as a familiarity with the data needs and processes of a number of different areas, including healthcare, business, government and the environment.

The Data Science and Analytics Masters degree offers you the opportunity to develop a range of relevant skills including:

  • analysing structured and unstructured data
  • analysing large datasets
  • critically evaluating results in context
  • getting insights from data

The course combines expertise from the Schools of Computing, Geography and Mathematics with that of Leeds University Business School.

This collaboration allows you to benefit from a range of data science perspectives and applications, allowing you to tailor the course to match your own career ambitions.

There is increasing demand for individuals who can manage and control the way data is used. These individuals require an understanding of computer science and mathematics as well as a range of sector specific skills.

The emerging era of ‘big data’ brought about by the digital technology revolution shows no signs of abating. With the modern world producing ever-growing amounts of new information, data scientists will become increasingly important to help governments, businesses, researchers, NGOs and many other organisations make sense of it all.
