About

 Designed to be both mathematically rigorous and relevant, the Computational Statistics and Machine Learning programme offered at the University College London (UCL) covers fundamental aspects of machine learning and statistics, with potential options in information retrieval, bioinformatics, quantitative finance, artificial intelligence and machine vision.

Overview

The Computational Statistics and Machine Learning programme offered at the University College London (UCL) teaches advanced analytical and computational skills for success in a data rich world.

The programme aims to provide graduates with the foundational principles and the practical experience needed by employers in the area of machine learning and statistics.

 Graduates of this programme will have had the opportunity to develop their skills by tackling problems related to industrial needs or to leading-edge research.

Careers

There is a strong national and international demand for graduates with skills at the interface of traditional statistics and machine learning. 

Substantial sectors of UK industry, including leading, large companies already make extensive use of computational statistics and machine learning techniques in the course of their business activities. 

Globally there are a large number of very successful users of this technology, many located in the UK. Areas in which expertise in statistics and machine learning is in particular demand include: finance, banking, insurance, retail, e-commerce, pharmaceuticals, and computer security. 

Graduates have gone on to further study at, for example, the Universities of Cambridge, Helsinki, Chicago, as well as at UCL. The MSc is also ideal preparation for a PhD, in statistics, machine learning or a related area.
