Course content

This course is designed to train highly qualified data analysts – or data scientists – to embark on careers in a wide range of industries. You’ll be given an excellent practical and theoretical grounding in data mining and statistics with the chance to customise your degree through modules in artificial intelligence, visualisation, programming and database manipulation.

Data Scientists are highly prized for their advanced, practical skill set and their increasing importance to the success of a modern business. Organisations in almost any industry need to source, analyse and utilise vast amounts of data to aid strategic decision-making, so you’ll have great graduate career prospects as well as a wide range of transferrable skills.

We have a large Data Mining, Machine Learning and Statistics research group, which has made significant contributions to the field in the last 10 years, so you’ll be working directly with pioneering experts.
