Data Science (part time) MSc
Developed specifically to meet the needs of those currently working in IT, you will be able to gain a formal qualification whilst continuing to work
Dundee City Campus
From the apps you use on your phone to the items you buy from the supermarket, data is being gathered every second of every day. With so much data to analyse, data scientists are in high demand throughout the commercial and academic industries.
You will learn to store, manipulate and analyse big data effectively by implementing powerful and innovative methods to transform vast amounts of data into actionable insights.
You will explore areas such as logical and physical models of analytical systems, data mining, and machine learning.
The course is specifically designed with career development in mind. It provides additional skills and knowledge for those currently working in IT and related areas.
You will complete two one-week blocks of intensive teaching on campus each year with the rest of your time spent learning from home, developing your skills, knowledge, and understanding of data science. Therefore, you will be able to gain a formal qualification whilst continuing to work.
Unlike other courses in this field, you do not need an advanced understanding of mathematics, as the course focuses on how to apply the principles of data science to the data you are working with rather than just the equations.
You will be taught by industry experts currently working in the field, increasing your understanding of real-life situations you could face in your career.
