      Descripción

      Data science is positioned to be the major new arena of scientific discovery in the 21st century. As Eric Schimdt, CEO of Google, has pointed out, we now generate as much information every two days as we did from the dawn of human civilisation up until the year 2003.



      To cope with this vast amount of data, there is an urgent requirement to derive meaningful insights from very large and diverse data sources: the so called 'big data challenge'. Secure identification of individuals, accurate financial prediction and reliable cancer diagnosis are all examples of area in which the technologies underpinning data science are marketing revolutionary contributions, enriching our lives, and making our future healthier, more efficient and more secure.

      Lo mejor: Good place but due to expenses I won't recommend the same. During the seminars which are practical classes we get to memorize lots of things through exercises which is so positive and save us time from studying at home.
      A mejorar: nothing to improve

      Course content

      What will you study on the MSc Data Science by Research?

      The MSc by Research (Data Science) aims to bring together, in an interdisciplinary fashion, data science-related activities from across the University, centring on the core activities of machine-learning, visual analytics and data storage. These will work together to support applications-driven data scenarios.

      To support the interdisciplinary nature of this programme, you will have a core activity supervisor (machine learning, visual analytics), as well as a supervisor specialising in your chosen application area.

      This degree is an entirely research-based master's programme. The majority of your time will be spent working on your research project in the library, laboratories or elsewhere, under the direction of your supervisors.

      Alongside your independent study, you will also have tutorial lectures in the key areas of machine learning and visual analytics. You will have regular meetings with your supervisor to review progress and plan future activities. You may also spend brief periods at partner sites, for example where your project involves collaboration with industry.

      Full-time students are expected to attend for an average of 35 hours per week and part-time students for an average of 12 hours per week.

      Assessment

      Assessment will be based on a final dissertation of approximately 30,000 words. Two independent examiners will be appointed who will read and evaluate the dissertation, following which you will be invited to make an oral defence of your work.

      You can find more information about this course in the programme specification. Module and programme information is indicative and may be subject to change.
