About

The Computing (Data Science) from Institute of Technology Sligo prepares graduates for future work opportunities in data analytics, big data and artificial intelligence. Data Science is an occupation in high demand with strong employment growth across multiple industry sectors. 

Overview

Our unique Masters programme Computing (Data Science) from Institute of Technology Sligo combines 6 taught modules with a strong research project, where students are given the opportunity to implement their learning within a real-life context.

Programming for Data Science will introduce the learner to the core concepts of data science programming. 

The student will be introduced to the Python programming language (specifically SciPy) generally, and will employ functions to manipulate lists, before implementing multi-dimensional arrays using Numpy or similar in order to perform statistical operations and linear equations. 

The student will then manipulate data frames and time-series data using pandas or similar. SQL programming will also be introduced. Finally, the student will create, populate and query a NoSQL cloud database.

Careers

Data Scientists will implement and assess the models for increasingly complex and technical roles currently required by industry. Skills such as Artificial Intelligence and Data Science are highly sought after in manufacturing, insurance, retail, health & education sectors to harness opportunities associated with researching and making decisions based on data.
