Что я буду изучать?

Our MSc in data science teaches the theory and skills for managing and analysing very large and complex data sets, sometimes referred to as Big Data.

You will learn how to model, store and process these data sets using the latest algorithms and techniques and about modern methods and tools for visually exploring them.

The core courses of the programme provide the key skill set of a data scientist: applying machine learning, managing large data sets, and generating interesting visualisations.

The skills acquired will be applicable to business applications, industrial applications and also to scientific data exploration.
