Big data is becoming more and more important in fields from science to marketing, engineering medicine and government. This programme will equip you with specialist knowledge in this exciting field and allow you to explore a range of advanced topics in computer science. You’ll gain a foundation in topics like systems programming and algorithms, as well as the basics of machine learning and knowledge representation. You’ll also choose from optional modules focusing on topics like image analysis or text analytics, or broaden your approach with topics like cloud computing. As one of the few schools with expertise covering text, symbolic and scientific/numerical data analysis, we can provide a breadth of expertise to equip you with a variety of skills – and you’ll work as an integral member of one of our research groups when you develop your main project. We also have close links with the Leeds Institute for Data Analytics which is at the forefront of big data research.
