Overview

We are surrounded by data. The variety and amount we collect and store grows every day, from the simplest of retail transactions to the complex and intimate medical records of millions.

Why do we store data? Where do we store it? How do we retrieve it? What do we use it for?

There is an increasing demand for people who can manage and control the way data is used. These individuals require an understanding of computer science and mathematics, as well as a familiarity with the data needs and processes of a number of different areas, including healthcare, business, government and the environment.

The Data Science and Analytics MSc is a highly flexible course which offers you the opportunity to develop a range of skills through a combination of compulsory and optional modules, including:

  • analysing structured and unstructured data
  • analysing large datasets
  • critically evaluating results in context
  • getting insights from data

The course combines expertise from the Schools of Computing, Geography and Mathematics with that of Leeds University Business School. By choosing the appropriate modules, you can follow specific pathways in business management, healthcare or geographic information systems (GIS).

This collaboration allows you to benefit from a range of data science perspectives and applications, allowing you to tailor the course to match your own career ambitions.

Course content

The programme will equip students with the knowledge and skills they need to meet the challenges of data science in the modern world.

Students on this programme will be benefit from being taught by experts from different academic units: the School of Mathematics; the School of Computing; the School of Geography and Leeds University Business School.

Modules can be chosen from each of these areas. Mathematics modules are available for students who are not from a mathematics/statistics background, while Computing modules will be suitable for students on this programme who are not from a computer science background.

The programme will introduce you to different perspectives on data science, including the mathematical and computational underpinnings of the subject and its applications in specific contexts.

Your dissertation will enable you to span academic disciplines with supervision from both area. For this project you will interpret a real-world problem, covering data elucidation, analysis, and application, building the key skills you will use in a professional or academic career.
