About the course


Data Science is now one of the most sought after roles in the commercial and academic worlds. So much so that finding a qualified data scientist is known as "hunting the unicorn".

Dundee was the first University in the UK to predict the importance of Data Science and introduced the UK's first Data Science MSc back in 2013. Consequently, we are at the forefront of Data Science study and have more experience of teaching it than any other University in the UK. We also designed our course to be easy to complete part-time and largely remotely.

This MSc will prepare you to become a data scientist, a person who excels at manipulating and analysing data, particularly large data sets that don't fit easily into tabular structures (so-called "Big Data").
