BSc (Hons) Data Science

The BSc (Hons) Data Science degree, awarded by Coventry University will provide students with essential training in probability, statistics, mathematics and computational concepts and techniques for the visualisation, modelling and analysis of large datasets. This skills-rich degree will provide students with the necessary training for employment in numerous fields as a data scientist, analyst, or similar, requiring a critical and independent mind as well as problem solving.

Ninety percent of the data in the world today has been created in the last two years alone, rendering traditional data processing applications inadequate and increasing the demand for sophisticated data analysts who can collate, interpret and draw value from complex data sets.

Businesses and organisations from almost every sector have woken up to the power of data analytics. Used effectively, they can inform decision making within business and finance, predict and dispense medical treatment within the healthcare system and help improve performance in sports or interpret data from smartphone apps.

Upon completion of this degree, you will receive a qualification awarded by Coventry University.
