How do we use algorithms responsibly, ethically and legally? How do we visualise the results? In the very near future, most commercial and governmental organisations will depend on their ability to meet these challenges.
This Data Science Masters/MSc has been designed to get people from a variety of academic backgrounds up to speed with the state-of-the-art in data science. You'll learn programming and data management skills so that you can collect and manipulate data, advanced techniques for analysing and revealing patterns in data, and visualisation skills so that you can turn large data sets into something decision-makers can make sense of.
To enrich your learning experience on our programmes, our teaching is delivered jointly by staff from both our campuses (Dubai and the UK), by utilising modern digital technology. Typically, for each module, the teaching team consists of colleagues across the campuses with at least one member based in the Dubai campus. You will receive the same high-quality teaching materials (lecture slides and notes, for example) and rigorous assessments (assignments and exams, for example) as our UK campus. You will also have the opportunity to interact with staff & students across both campuses to support and enhance your learning experience. Furthermore, there is also the opportunity to conduct projects under the supervision of staff from either of our campuses which significantly boosts the pool of project topics accessible to our students.
We offer a flexible combination of evening and weekend classes which are designed to accommodate working professionals.

You will study six, 20-credit fundamental compulsory modules and a 60-credit data science project. You will come to understand the cutting-edge contemporary challenges in data science and in a 20-credit group project you will try solving them through collaboration, and then complete a substantial individual project during which you will be able to showcase what you have learned.
By the end of the programme you'll be ready to apply your knowledge to help organisations understand the huge amounts of data they collect every day.
