Data Science (with Specialisation in Computer Science)
Data science brings together computational and statistical skills for data-driven problem solving. This rapidly expanding area includes machine learning, deep learning, large-scale data analysis and has applications in e-commerce, search/information retrieval, natural language modelling, finance, bioinformatics and related areas in artificial intelligence.
A minimum of an upper 2nd class Honours degree in a quantitative discipline (such as mathematics, computer science, engineering, physics or statistics) from a UK university or an overseas, qualification of an equivalent standard. Knowledge of mathematical methods including linear algebra and calculus at first-year university level is required. Depending on the modules selected, students undertake assignments that contain programming elements and prior experience in a high-level programming language (R/matlab/python) is useful. Relevant professional experience will also be taken into consideration.
Applied machine learning; information retrieval and data mining; introduction to machine learning; introduction to statistical data science; applied bayesian methods; business analytics; cloud computing; decision and risk; financial data and statistics; machine vision; programming and mathematical methods in machine learning; statistical models and data analysis; web economics; affective computing and human-robot interaction; bioinformatics; computational modelling for biomedical imaging; forecasting; graphical models; stochastic systems; supervised learning.
The programme is delivered though a combination of lectures, seminars, class discussions and project supervision. Student performance is assessed through a combination of unseen written examination, coursework (much of which involves programming and/or data analysis), practical application, and the research project.
