Course Information

Data science and artificial intelligence are believed to be one of most exciting areas of computing. Applications of data in modern businesses and modern engineering is the main focus of these studies, together with artificial intelligence focused on using data to develop intelligent systems that can think and learn for themselves.

This discipline offers a variety of interesting jobs including developers, engineers, analysts all playing a critical role in sectors of data science and machine learning. A starting point for such a role is getting right education in place.

This programme is dedicated to students from a non-computing background. Throughout its duration you will be provided with knowledge and technical skills that are directly applicable in the workplace. You will learn how to collect and analyse information required for making data-driven decisions. You will also learn how to use intelligent systems across a range of contexts.

The University of Liverpool is one of the world leaders in data science and artificial intelligence research. Its 2021 founded Digital Innovation Facility will provide students with a purpose-built environment for cutting-edge research into multiple academic disciplines including AI, robotics and data analytics. 

You will have access to an online development environment to practice and refine your new technical skills, which also contains all of the technologies and software you will need for the course – inclusive within your tuition fee. 

Throughout the course, you will be encouraged to apply your new skills to a range of real-world challenges, and upon completion, you will be prepared to research, create and implement solutions to technical problems within your future career. 

This programme offers alternative awards, meaning you may opt for either a full Masters degree, or finish up with either Post Graduate Diploma or Post Graduate Certificate.
