About

Advances in computer science allow us to collect and store more data than ever before. However, making sense of all of this data is a challenge. The Data Science programme from University of Birmingham will give you the skills to address these challenges through the use of computation.

Overview

This Data Science programme from University of Birmingham has been designed to get people from a variety of academic backgrounds up to speed with the state-of-the-art in data science. You'll learn programming and data management skills so that you can collect and manipulate data, advanced techniques for analysing and revealing patterns in data, and visualisation skills so that you can turn large data sets into something decision-makers can make sense of.

You will study six, 20-credit fundamental compulsory modules and a 60-credit data science project. You will come to understand the cutting-edge contemporary challenges in data science and in a 20-credit group project you will try solving them through collaboration, and then complete a substantial individual project during which you will be able to showcase what you have learned.

By the end of the programme you'll be ready to apply your knowledge to help organisations understand the huge amounts of data they collect every day.
