The MSc in Data Science gives you a solid grounding in data science concepts and technologies for extracting information and constructing knowledge from data. This course focuses on three core technical themes of data mining, machine learning, and visualisation. You study computational principles, methods, and systems for a variety of real world applications that require mathematical foundations, programming skills, critical thinking, and ingenuity.
Developing research skills is an essential element of the course, enabling you to bring a critical perspective to current data science discipline, and apply it to future developments. You learn how to mine structured data and unstructured data, gaining practical data mining experience alongside a systematic understanding of complex and heterogeneous data.
Conventional and state-of-the-art machine learning techniques will be taught through the application of methods and techniques to synthesise solutions. By the end of the course you will be confident in applying concepts in data visualisation, information visualisation, and visual analytics to support data process and knowledge discovery.
Tuition fees for years of study after your first year are subject to an increase of 3%.
