Data Science - Coventry University

A diverse range of sectors, such as the IT industry, health, sports, finance, marketing and sales, are crying out for graduates with the ability to think clearly and logically, analyse complicated data sets, solve problems, make recommendations and communicate technical information in a language everyone can understand. A good grounding in mathematical thinking, statistics and computing is essential for creating and using algorithms and systems that identify patterns and extract value from masses of data. Coventry University has a long tradition of teaching mathematics, statistics and computing with a strong emphasis on its applications in practical situations. This new course blends all of these subject areas with a view to tackle a huge variety of interesting and engaging problems from business and industry – from fraud detection and credit risk to efficiency improvements and optimisation of delivery methods. You’ll have access to our computing facilities, which enable you to gain experience using mathematical software packages, like MAPLE and MATLAB®. You can also receive one-to-one assistance from Sigma, the University’s internationally-renowned Centre for Excellence in Mathematics and Statistics Support, which previously won the Times Higher Education (THE) award for Outstanding Support for Students. Our teachers are active researchers in applied mathematics with expertise in fluid dynamics and complex systems, who share their research findings through teaching and supervising projects. You will also have the opportunity to apply for summer research internships (subject to availability and application). Past students have, for example, undertaken internships analysing social networks of past cultures through ancient and mythological narratives or studied lattice models of polymers. **Key Course Benefits** * Strong portfolio of industrial research collaborations with, for example, the National Energy Laboratory, Calham Centre for Fusion Energy and Alcan. * Taught by staff conducting cutting-edge research; 86% of our research outputs were deemed world-leading or internationally excellent in the Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014). * Student exchanges and visiting scholars thanks to close links with the University of Grenoble and are members of the FrancoGerman Doctoral School for Complex Systems and Out-of-Equilibrium Systems, together with the Universities of Lorraine, Leipzig and Lviv.
