The programme consists of eight compulsory modules and a statistics with data analytics dissertation. The first term provides a thorough grounding in core programming, statistical and data analysis skills. In addition to acquiring relevant statistical and computational methods, you’ll be encouraged to engage with real commercial and/or industrial problems through a series of inspiring case studies delivered by guest speakers.
On completing this course you’ll be equipped with a range of advanced statistical methods and the associated computational skills for handing large quantities of unstructured data. You’ll develop a critical awareness of the underlying needs of industry and commerce through case studies. You’ll be able to analyse real-world data and to communicate the output of sophisticated statistical models in order to inform decision making processes. You’ll have the necessary computational skills to build and analyse simple/appropriate solutions using statistical Big Data technologies.
This course can be studied 1 year full-time or 2 years part-time, starting in September.
