About

Big data is becoming more and more important in fields from science to marketing, engineering, medicine and government. This Advanced Computer Science (Data Analytics) degree from University of Leeds will equip you with specialist knowledge in this exciting field and allow you to explore a range of advanced topics in computer science.

Overview

You’ll gain a foundation in topics like systems programming and algorithms, as well as the basics of machine learning and knowledge representation. You’ll also choose from optional modules focusing on topics like image analysis or text analytics, or broaden your approach with topics like cloud computing.

As one of the few schools with expertise covering text, symbolic and scientific/numerical data analysis, we can provide a breadth of expertise to equip you with a variety of skills – and you’ll work as an integral member of one of our research groups when you develop your main project. We also have close links with the Leeds Institute for Data Analytics (LIDA) which is at the forefront of big data research.

Career opportunities

Computing is an essential component of nearly every daily activity, from the collection and processing of information in business, through to smart systems embedded in devices, image processing in medical diagnosis and the middleware that underpins distributed technologies like cloud computing and the semantic web.

This Advanced Computer Science (Data Analytics) degree from University of Leeds will give you the practical skills to enter many areas of applied computing, working as application developers, system designers and evaluators. Links between the taught modules and our research provide our students with added strengths in artificial intelligence, intelligent systems, distributed systems, and the analysis of complex data.
