I chose to study at Queen Mary because of the exciting research happening at the university, including in area of big data science. I chose this course because of the opportunity to be taught by experts in the field. I have enjoyed completing coursework for my modules, since this has allowed me to gain significant practical Python experience. My favourite module has been Neural Networks and Deep Learning. I have enjoyed learning about the different types of neural networks and also building neural network architectures using PyTorch.
