WHY TAKE THIS COURSE?

Undertaking the MSc Applied Science through the Learning at Work Partnership Masters Programme allows you to study for a recognised postgraduate university degree without leaving your job.

Our programme enables you to extend your knowledge and understanding of the sciences whether physics, biology, chemistry or mathematics. Whether you need a breadth of knowledge or to specialise in one area, this course will enable you to gain the practical skills and learning relevant to your professional and personal development aspirations.

It will help you develop the ability to reflect on your own actions and decisions within the workplace and to become an independent learner, able to make sound professional judgements when faced with complex scientific problems.

WHAT WILL I EXPERIENCE?

A unique flexible course that allows you to set your own objectives, choose your specific course content and tailor the pace of learning to suit the demands on your time. It is a three-way partnership between you, your employer and the University which enables you to make an effective contribution to your workplace, as well as improving your career prospects.

Much of your learning comes from work-based learning (WBL) projects that form part of your daily workload, which ensures that the knowledge gained is relevant to your employer's business. University taught units and other training programmes can provide additional learning.

WHAT OPPORTUNITIES MIGHT IT LEAD TO?

Our programme is the choice for those who already have a first degree, or who have lower qualifications coupled with several years experience in responsible positions. If you’ve achieved a high level of skill through experience that isn’t reflected in your qualifications, then our course could be for you.

There is a good potential that your award can be used to gain professional recognition or help you achieve the CPD requirements of professional registration.

STRUCTURE & TEACHING

The time you take to complete your studies is up to you and is not tied to the academic calendar. It depends on the point at which you start the course and your personal circumstances at work and at home.

Students make up the academic credit required for achievement of their award through a combination of different learning all of which is detailed in a learning contract. The balance of elements in a learning programme is agreed by negotiation between you and your Workplace Partner, Academic Tutor and Learning Manager.

The learning can include:

  • Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL): This allows you to receive credit for the qualifications you already have and for experience that has given you the learning equivalent to academic qualifications. This can include in-service training courses and qualifications, as well as learning from on-the-job experience. The maximum RPL credit you can receive is two-thirds of the credit for the award. Top up a PgCert or PgDip or international equivalent in a science based subject to a full MSc. For further information contact the Learning at Work department.
  • Work-based Learning Projects: These usually make up the bulk of the learning contract. They must involve new learning for you, so they cannot be simply the activities involved in your regular job. However, they should be of value to your employer as well as yourself and you should be able to carry out much of the project work in normal working hours. Examples of past projects include an Evaluation of COPD Directed Medicines Use and Autoclave: Qualification and Validation.
  • Taught Units: Campus based or distance learning units from the University of Portsmouth or other higher education institutions can be included in your programme. They are a good way of acquiring new knowledge in a structured way. Examples of taught units include Clinical Research, Medical Biochemistry, Cellular Pathology.

We use the best and most current research and professional practice, alongside feedback from our students, to make sure course content is relevant to your future career or further studies.

Therefore, some course content may change over time to reflect changes in the discipline or industry and some optional units may not run every year. If a unit doesn’t run, we’ll let you know as soon as possible and help you choose an alternative unit.

Goal of the pro­gramme

Data science combines computer science and statistics to solve exciting data-intensive problems in industry and in many fields of science. Data scientists help organisations make sense of their data. As data is collected and analysed in all areas of society, demand for professional data scientists is high and will grow higher. The emerging Internet of Things, for instance, will produce a whole new range of problems and opportunities in data analysis.

In the Data Science master’s programme, you will gain a solid understanding of the methods used in data science. You will learn not only to apply data science: you will acquire insight into how and why methods work so you will be able to construct solutions to new challenges in data science. In the Data Science master’s programme, you will also be able to work on problems specific to a scientific discipline and to combine domain knowledge with the latest data analysis methods and tools. The teachers of the programme are themselves active data science researchers, and the programme is heavily based on first-hand research experience.

Upon graduating from the Data Science MSc programme, you will have solid knowledge of the central concepts, theories, and research methods of data science as well as applied skills. In particular, you will be able to

  • Understand the general computational and probabilistic principles underlying modern machine learning and data mining algorithms
  • Apply various computational and statistical methods to analyse scientific and business data
  • Assess the suitability of each method for the purpose of data collection and use
  • Implement state-of-the-art machine learning solutions efficiently using high-performance computing platforms
  • Undertake creative work, making systematic use of investigation or experimentation, to discover new knowledge
  • Report results in a clear and understandable manner
  • Analyse scientific and industrial data to devise new applications and support decision making.

The MSc programme is offered jointly by the Department of Computer Science, the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, and the Department of Physics, with support from the Helsinki Institute for Information Technology (HIIT) and the Helsinki Institute of Physics (HIP), all located on the Kumpula Science campus. In your applied data science studies you can also include multidisciplinary studies from other master's programmes, such as digital humanities, and natural and medical sciences.

Further information about the studies on the Master's programme website.

Pro­gramme con­tents

The Data Science MSc programme combines elements from computer science and mathematical sciences to provide you with skills in topics such as machine learning, distributed systems and statistical methods. You might also find that knowledge in a particular scientific field is useful for your future career. You can obtain this through elective studies in the MSc programme, or it might already be part of your bachelor-level degree.

Studies in the Data Science MSc programme include both theoretical and practical components, including a variety of study methods (lectures, exercises, projects, seminars; done both individually and in groups). Especially in applied data science, we also use problem-based learning methods, so that you can address real-world issues. You will also practise academic skills such as scientific writing and oral presentation throughout your studies. You are encouraged to include an internship in your degree in order to obtain practical experience in the field.

Elective studies give you a wider perspective of Data Science. Your elective studies can be an application area of Data Science (such as physics or the humanities), a discipline that supports application of Data Science (such as language technology), or a methodological subject needed for the development of new Data Science methods and models (such as computer science, statistics, or mathematics).
