M.Sc. Data Science and Analytics

Brunel University London
London, United Kingdom
Brunel University London Kingston Lane Uxbridge Middlesex UB8 3PH

Data is being collected at an unprecedented speed and scale – but ‘big data’ is of little use without ‘big insight’. The skills required to develop such insight are in short supply and the shortage of skilled workers in the data analytics market is cited as a key barrier. The Data Science and Analytics MSc programme provides these skills, combining a strong academic programme with hands-on experience of leading commercial technology – and the chance to gain industry certification. You will develop both your critical awareness of the state-of-the-art in data science and the practical skills that help you apply data science more effectively in the business, science and social world. The programme is run in conjunction with SAS, a market leader in business analytics software and services, and the largest independent vendor in the business intelligence market. Brunel’s programme is unique in being the only current MSc programme that is fully integrated with SAS, providing the SAS base certification.
