About

The Data Science MSc programme offered by The University of Edinburgh is the study of the computational principles, methods, and systems for extracting and structuring knowledge from data; and the application and use of those principles.

Overview

As a student on the Data Science MSc programme offered by The University of Edinburgh you will explore how to efficiently find patterns in these vast streams of data. Many research areas have tackled parts of this problem. Machine learning focuses on finding patterns and making predictions from data; ideas from algorithms and databases are required to build systems that scale to big data streams; and separate research areas have grown around different types of unstructured data such as text, images, sensor data, video, and speech.

Career opportunities:

You will develop specialist, advanced skills in data science methods and their applications. You will gain practical experience and a thorough theoretical understanding of the field, making you attractive to a wide range of employers or preparing you for further academic study.
