Data Science (with Industrial Placement)

Data science is the study of information – where it comes from, what it tells us and how to turn it into a resource for business and IT strategies. Data scientists perform detailed analysis of an organisation’s data along with data from the wider world, sometimes termed ‘big data’. This requires using statistical and computational techniques, tools and approaches to identify and predict trends and patterns. Our BSc (Hons) Data Science degree combines computer science with computer programming, applied statistics, data mining, data and database management, and information governance. It includes programming and data manipulation skills, and has a clear focus on pragmatic skills.
