What will I learn?

Our MSc Data Science and Artificial Intelligence provides you with most advanced knowledge, methods and processes as enablers for deploying data science and artificial intelligence-based solutions to real-world problems. In particular, this degree emphasises on various investigative data science and artificial intelligence-based approaches, which apply to the security, environment, human behaviour understanding, transport, health, smart cities domain sectors and more.

You will specifically learn about recent advances in the fields of data analytics, big data tools and technologies, machine intelligence while concretely experimenting on machine knowledge extraction and decision-support.

You will graduate with important skills in strategic thinking, for scientific research implementation and communication. This is in addition to the theoretical and practical skills which are needed for the efficient implementation of data science and artificial intelligence-based projects.

We also have established close relationships with companies, research and government agencies that are interested in recruiting skilled graduates in data science and artificial intelligence. Through these relationships, we have organised codejams/hackathons where you will have the opportunity to visit such organisations for a specific period of time and work on interesting and practical data science and artificial problems. This approach will support you for establishing an internship or placement during your course.

We use a broad range of data science tools and technologies, from those which are established in industry and academia for many years (e.g. MATLAB, R and Weka), to the new favourites which prepare you for mainstream data science jobs currently (e.g. Python, Jupyter notebook, Apache Spark and libraries such as Keras, TensorFlow, and PyTorch).

We teach a number of core units and offer modern and popular subjects as options, such as Blockchain and Digital Features, which will give you a competitive edge when entering the job market.
