    What is the programme about?
    The programme aims to produce industry-ready graduates who are knowledgeable in the processes, practice and implementation of secure and scalable software that leverage data analytics. Graduates will be equipped with an in-depth knowledge of the critical aspects of data analytics and information security, including but not limited to software design and development, data mining, data visualization, distributed data systems, secure cloud services, and cyber security.

    Students will explore a variety of computer languages, data mining and analysis techniques, security principles and models and will acquire the necessary knowledge to adapt to the changing nature of the industry throughout their careers.

    Students will specify, design, develop and implement solutions in the Data Analytics, Information and Cyber Security domains. In addition to module specific projects, students will be required to complete two capstone projects under academic guidance; a team based project in year 3 of the programme and a substantial individual based project in year 4 of the programme.

    Who is the programme suited to?
    This programme is aimed at students who are interested in understanding data from the world around us and explore how they can make better decisions for industry, people, sports teams and communities. Students will also be interested in how we can store data securely on the cloud and prevent the information being accessed by unauthorised individuals.

    This programme has been developed with local companies to target opportunities in the Software Services, Sports Performance Analysis, Financial services, Agri-food, Pharmaceutical and manufacturing sectors.
