Data Science

Overview

Data and information is recognised as a central to the economic, business and cultural life of our society today. This course will equip you with the advanced information and analytic skills to thrive in the digital knowledge economy.

Whether you are already working and looking to enhance your expertise in the area of data science or you have recently graduated and want to move into roles specifically aligned with data science and analytics, this course will help you develop a comprehensive understanding of the role of data within business. You will study data governance, considering how data can be sourced, consolidated and stored securely, responsibly and efficiently. You will also explore the techniques used to analyse data, discover how data can contribute to a company's business strategy and focus on the application of data science in a specific field such as health, education or fraud prevention.

Central to the course will be the themes of security, ethics, data governance and sustainability. You will graduate with a critical awareness of the current ethical and security problems associated with the exploitation of information services and resources in organisations, enabling you to support collection, sorting and ordering of data, big data and information across a range of sectors.
In the ever changing technological world, the skills required to successfully manage and share an organisations' data, require employees that have good understanding of data issues, technology, people and business. All of these skills are addressed by modules on this course, placing you at the forefront of the emerging digital economy.

You will be encouraged to undertake projects and volunteering opportunities with outside organisations, and our expert staff will ensure your learning is highly relevant to the workplace. Industry experts and leaders in their field will further fine tune your knowledge by sharing their expertise and professional insights during regular guest lectures. Past speakers have included computing, forensic and engineering experts from KPMG, Hermes Innovation Lab and Premier Farnell. Goranka Bjedov, Performance and Capacity Engineer at Facebook, visited the School to talk about her work in ensuring Facebook's worldwide data centres are able to deliver a 24/7 service to users.

The University is home to four research institutes and 14 research centres, including the Cybercrime & Security Innovation Centre and the New Technology Institute. Findings from our research will feed into your learning to equip you with the latest thinking and industry insights.

We understand that full-time study does not suit everyone. That’s why we offer courses which give you the opportunity to decide where, when and how you can get involved in learning. Studying a distance learning course offers the convenience and flexibility to make education work for you. Whether you’d like to fit your studies around childcare, develop your skills while working or, quite simply, want to learn from the comfort of your own home, we can help you gain a qualification at a time and pace that suits your lifestyle.

Like our students on campus, you will have the same excellent teaching and learning resources, however you’ll find these online instead of in a lecture theatre. Not only are all the modules taught online, but you will also have access to an online community and more than 140,000 books and journals in our online library.

To study this course, you will require broadband internet connection with a speed of 2mbps and working speakers. You will need Windows 7 / Mac OSX 10.8 or above and have access to Chrome v63 or higher (recommended), Edge v42+, Firefox v57+ or Safari v6+. Java and Adobe Acrobat Reader will need to be enabled and you will need a minimum screen resolution of 1024 x 768.

Course Director
Jackie has had a varied career in systems development and data analytics, working for many major international businesses prior to joining the University. Her teaching areas focus around data – data science, business intelligence, data analysis, databases in forensics, and data warehousing and mining.
Innovative use of technology is one of the keys to the success of business operations. The ability to think creatively about the interaction between technology, data, businesses and lifestyle combined with the skills to communicate and implement these ideas will be what drives this innovation.

            Studying part-time gives you the flexibility to learn at your own pace. Because of this, our tuition fees are calculated using credit points. Each module you study has a credit point value. Most modules have a credit point value of 20. The tuition fee for students entering in in 201920 on this course is £777.80 for each 20 credit point module. For modules with a different credit point value their cost can be calculated by multiplying the credit value of the module by the cost per credit point of £38.89. The amount you will pay may increase each year in line with inflation.
