The Data Science for Cultural Heritage programme from the University College London (UCL) pioneers a new way of teaching data science through application in a cross-disciplinary context. As a student on the Data Science for Cultural Heritage MSc (DaSCH), you will develop advanced data science skills, such as crowd sourced data science, machine learning and imaging data analysis. You will explore the complexities of acquisition, analysis and exploitation of the variety of data that is generated and used in heritage contexts, including data generated through analysis and measurement, imaging and surveying, citizen science, and digitally born data.
Data science is in high demand in many and diverse industries. As a graduate of MSc DSCH you will be ideally placed to gain employment as data scientist, in particular in those sectors that foster interdisciplinarity and break barriers between technology and humanities or social sciences.
The programme has been developed with input from industry leaders from a diversity of sectors, including architecture, heritage, social media or digital technologies. You will gain exposure to real data challenges from these industries and will develop skill set in data science that will be highly transferable across these and many other sectors.
Cross-disciplinarity, an applied focus, an emphasis on innovation and critical thinking are the key qualities that will define the professional character of our graduates and will make you stand out from other data scientists.
You will develop advanced data science skills, as well as many transferrable skills such as coding, presentation and communication skills, working with different stakeholders, problem contextualization or public engagement techniques.
