The MSc in Data Science from University of Wolverhampton is aimed at converting graduates from a broad range of disciplines into Data Science specialists. The distinctive nature of this course means that it appeals to students from a broad spectrum of academic backgrounds who may benefit from some additional assistance with areas outside of their previous area of study such as mathematics or programming.
What you'll study
Prior to joining the course students are given an induction programme in mathematics and programming to equip them with the core skills needed to succeed. This induction programme will be available to students all year round and additional support with mathematics and programming will be provided as needed by the expert support team at the University.
As part of the course students will have the opportunity to apply to do a paid internship with one of our industry partners, a list which includes The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust and Transport for West Midlands. Industry partners will also support the programme by providing students with case studies based on real events and will provide their cloud training environment to allow modelling of real-world scenarios.
An important aim for this programme is to increase the number of people from groups currently underrepresented in the AI and Data Science fields, and to encourage graduates from diverse backgrounds to consider a future in these occupations. In support of this aim a number of scholarships of £10,000 are available to students enrolled on this course. This programme will prioritise scholarships for female, black and disabled students.
Potential Career Paths
This M.Sc. Data Science (conversion) has been developed with a specific focus on employability. The potential industry internship provides students with the opportunity to fine tune their skills directly in the workplace and to gain valuable work experience. The primary goal of the new conversion courses is to respond to the shortage of data science and AI specialists in the UK.
