Data Analytics is an exciting field of rapid developments. Data is everywhere and continuing to grow massively, creating huge growth in demand for qualified experts to be able to extract the real benefit from the data.
The role of a data scientist is highly diverse overlapping many areas from computer science, to the fundamentals of mathematics, statistics, modelling and analytics while also requiring the right skills to be able to see the detail, solve the problem (having specified the problem!), and communicate effectively the findings to colleagues to empower them to make decisions.
The diversity of data analytics opens up many job opportunities from working in software companies, healthcare, banking, insurance, policing, tech companies to applying your knowledge to intelligent buildings and behaviour analytics of customers.
In the first and second semesters, you will study 6 modules full-time which include opportunities for blended and collaborative learning. In the third semester you will undertake a significant industry based project.
Special features of the course include the Analytics in Action module and the commitment of industry to provide real data for “Analytathons” and projects. The module offers real world examples of data analytics presented by the industry experts working alongside the academics who will provide the theory, and the unique provision of this course across many academic disciplines in the University.
