Overview

Our MSc Big Data Analytics programme is designed to provide students with in-depth knowledge of the new field of big data analytics from a computing perspective. Data is being generated on an exponential scale by individuals and organisations. Valuable insights can be drawn from this data to inform strategic decisions, resulting in increased market share, profitability, possible cost savings and procedural efficiency. You will develop a critical understanding of the contemporary tools, techniques and models used for big data analytics.

The programme will enable you to develop practical skills, using tools and techniques from the forefront of business computing, and use these effectively to conduct big data analytics. It also seeks to promote an awareness of the moral, ethical and professional framework, within which you will operate as an IT professional in a business environment.

A key aspect of the programme philosophy is that the learning experience tightly integrates the use of Oracle commercial software (a world leader in this field), with investigation of the wider theoretical context. You will also learn about the skills needed to become a successful entrepreneur in the IT sector.
