Student Profile(s)

Ifeanyi Chukwu

"The programme is aimed at graduates from underrepresented fields – it's designed to accommodate everyone. This has made it possible for me to transition to a career path that I now immensely enjoy".

My academic background has been in marine life sciences, fish physiology, to be precise.

"But, for a long time, my interest has been in number crunching and manipulation, statistics, data, and emerging technologies.

"I lacked the relevant skillset that would enable me to explore this path of interest, so when I saw the advert for the new 'conversion' MSc program in Applied Artificial Intelligence and Data Analytics at the University of Bradford, I grabbed the opportunity with both hands."

Preparing for a future in AI
"Over the past 12 months, this MSc program has been transformational. It helped unlock my craving to actively participate in this emerging area, and has been instrumental in charting a new career path for me.

"Through the program, I have gained a tremendous amount of skill in artificial intelligence, particularly in the area of machine learning/deep learning, on which my capstone dissertation is based. Before this program, I did not know much about artificial intelligence or machine learning."

New opportunities
"It is fascinating, that within this short period, I have transitioned from being a novice to someone with a considerable amount of confidence in applying artificial intelligence and machine learning tools in solving complex data problems.

"I have also been equipped with coding skills in the Python and R programming languages. These new skills and knowledge have consequently opened new opportunities and possibilities for me."

New skills and experiences
"We were exposed to a wide range of data analytics tools and programming languages, including SAS Enterprise, Tableau, AWS cloud services, and Python.

"More importantly, we were given holistic and solid background knowledge coupled with transferable skills. As a result, it becomes possible to transfer and utilise the skillset in other areas almost effortlessly.

"For example, in the summer I undertook a short Health Data Research internship role at the Cardiovascular Epidemiology Unit of the University of Cambridge. The data analytics skills and background knowledge gained from this MSc programme enabled me to perform brilliantly during the placement.

"Also, due to the skill and knowledge gained from
