There has never been a time where so much data has been available in conjunction with the tools to make the most of it. These tools constitute the field of data science. There has also never been a time with so many global challenges to tackle, from the shortage of resources and the impact we have on the environment, to the ongoing drive towards automating and optimising a whole variety of systems such as transport, energy, health and communication. There are almost limitless opportunities to use these tools in the various domains and applications for making real impact on industry, society and policy making.
This session will explore the opportunities available in data science and data analytics and the possibilities available for career development. Dr Raykov will explain how Aston’s MSc in Data Analytics has been designed to address this industry need, and Dr Price will share her expertise on what potential applicants need to do in order to capitalise on these opportunities.
