Are you keen to learn more about the ways in which big data is transforming digital processes in everyday life? Increasingly, governments, business, industry and third sector organisations all rely on employees with an understanding of big data, how it can be used, its benefits and limitations. You don’t need a computer science, mathematics or statistics background to apply. Increasingly big data is used to track social trends and an understanding of big data is required in a growing range of employment contexts, meaning companies are recruiting graduates from a wider pool of academic backgrounds.
You’ll benefit from guest lectures by industry experts, and lab work, project work and software skills training will form an integral part of your learning experience. The course takes an interdisciplinary approach, with flexible module options both within the Centre and from outside departments. These could include modules in politics, international studies and sociology, as well as mathematics and computer science.
