This course is suitable for numerate graduates across many disciplines. Non-computing graduates are eligible.
Course provides students with the ability to combine state of the art computer science methods for processing a range of data (including but not limited to BIG data) incorporating methods of statistical analysis and data mining to extract understanding from data to formulate data models that can be interpreted and communicated effectively to stakeholders informed by ethical, legal and societal implications. Students will develop an in-depth understanding of technical, statistical, analytical and data mining skills, and an ability to develop high-quality data models, which can “tell a story” through the interpretation of the model.

There has been a 35% increase in UK demand for Data Scientists between 2012 and 2015. Britain is expected to create an average of 56,000 new big data jobs per year until 2020 and McKinsey and Company reports that by 2018, there will be 140,000-190,000 job postings by Companies that they are unable to fill due to the lack of expertise. The range of job roles envisaged for graduates from this degree include, but are not limited to:
- Data Scientist - Data warehouse analyst - Data architect / modeller - Database developer - Data Governor - Big Data Analyst - Decision Sciences Analyst
