Course Description

This programme combines two key areas of computing, namely data science and artificial intelligence, in a synergistic manner. Data science and Artificial Intelligence are two complementary areas of Intelligent Systems, with Data science focusing on statistical techniques and Artificial Intelligence on algorithmic techniques. Both areas are in high demand in the tech industry and for Industry 4.0.

Data science and Artificial Intelligence jobs are amongst the best paid in the IT sector with both skills in ever increasing demand. A recent report by the European Union predicted that there would be a need for 346,000 data scientist and machine learning experts by 2020. However, the UK faces a potentially crippling shortage of such professionals, threatening businesses in the UK.

This course seeks to address the chronic shortage of suitably qualified data science and Artificial Intelligence specialists and, at the same time, prepare you for a fulfilling and varied career in this fast growing IT sector.
