Course content

What revelations hide in social media, online reviews, mobile applications or Internet of Things (IoT) sensor data? Our MSc Data Science & Artificial intelligence unlocks the theories, skills and tools you need to uncover hidden patterns, correlations and trends. As a recent graduate of a STEM discipline or IT industry career changer, you’ll become a data specialist on this course. Data scientists and analysts work in a changing and evolving technology landscape. You need imagination and creativity to come up with novel ways to answer questions. We’ll teach you to assess new and advanced solutions then adapt them as you process, analyse and make sense of big and complex data. Study visualisation, modelling, and the foundations of artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms. Assess issues presented by big data in different situations. Learn essential methods, practices, and theories. Study relevant computational techniques. You’ll develop the skills and confidence you need to succeed with our Masters in data science & artificial intelligence. Please note, there is an intake to the 12-month full-time route each September and 16-month full-time route each January. The 16-month full-time route includes the UK summer break between semesters. The part-time route takes 2-3 years to complete and typically has intakes in both September and January.
