The university’s research is improving people’s lives by finding solutions to the problems of the 21st century. It offers Master of Science in Data Science (MSc Data Science) which has an emerging discipline to extract unique insights by extending the field of statistics to advanced computing with quantities of data.

The program will widen the skills and knowledge of the students as it uses industry-standard tools and methodologies. Learners are expected to analyze and solve the challenges in data science including the huge amount of data in incompatible legacy databases, and exploited cloud computing services. Students will learn how to apply advanced statistical techniques and machine learning algorithms that can deliver a big impact on the industries. Similarly, students will learn data analytics, big data computing, data mining, efficient algorithms for complex sets, latest technologies, and programming language. Throughout the program duration, students will undertake an extended project using real-world data science problems and learn the world of work as data scientists through core modules, lectures, tutorials, hands-on computer laboratory sessions, and research project modules. The program also offers an additional 60 credits from the usual 180 credits to include a group design project which aims to apply data science to the solution of a real-world problem. This will equip students with project management skills needed to excel in the chosen career, provide opportunities to further use the tools and systems that data scientists and data engineers use, and develop more skills in preparation for starting the chosen career.
