Within 3 months of starting the course I secured a graduate placement as a Technology Analyst at Barclays for after my masters, which I would not have got if I had not studied this course!

The University of Sheffield has some of the best teachers and research in the computer science department! You definitely get to learn a lot. It is a chance to learn from the best!

A lot of factors [made me choose to study at Sheffield] to be honest. The future lies with AI, machine learning and Natural Language Processing, and I am strongly drawn to AI from the very start. I believe there is tremendous untapped potential in these areas and it offers so much learning, I also like to engage in challenging tasks and kind of get bored with the mundane, so this area is all about diversity, learning, engaging, expanding and leveraging my skillset in the best possible way! Also did I mention how much you’re in demand and the diversity of jobs in which data analysts can engage in!

I found that the programme goes through the field of machine learning and other related fields from the first principles, which is an amazing way to learn about data science than to learn to just use the frameworks available.

The regular course work that pushes me to the fullest makes me enjoy the programme a lot. Assignments and the lab work are well thought out for any student to understand the essence of the concepts and further enhances my ability to understand them, and the academic and research staff are knowledgeable and well equipped with the advancements in the field.

As a software engineer by profession and having worked in the data engineering side of things, I believe the insight in data science will help on my path towards building software that is more involved in the realm of artificial intelligence.
