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.

Benefits for Students

A diverse range of sectors, such as the IT industry, health, sports, finance, marketing and sales, require graduates with the ability to think clearly and logically, analyse complicated data sets, solve problems, make recommendations and communicate technical information in a language everyone can understand.

A good grounding in mathematical thinking, statistics and computing is essential for creating and using algorithms and systems that identify patterns and extract value from masses of data.

The aims of this course are to:

  • To prepare students with the data science related knowledge and skills to aid industry;
  • To enable students to apply the data science concepts and principles they have learned to produce useful, logical, mathematically sound computational models with high accuracy in big data manipulation;
  • To provide students with the ability to apply the techniques of data science in real-world environments to make accurate predictions, identify trends to maximize revenue, minimize costs and optimise workflows;
  • To deliver a stimulating curriculum, with an emphasis on applications and the use of appropriate computational models, software and technology to solve real-world problems;
  • To promote independent, critical-thinking ability and the confidence to accept new challenges and solve problems;
  • To equip students with transferable and professional skills which prepare them for employment in industry, business or education
