Our Doctoral Research course focuses on pure or applied aspects of Data Science, with each student studying data from within their main discipline or area of employment. You will learn reflective and analytic approaches to data while engaging in your own data research.
The taught elements of the course include Data Ecology, Research Methods for Technologists, Applied Research Tools and Techniques, Spatial Data Analysis, Advanced Decision Making, Work-based Project Reviews and Planning for Doctoral Research.
These elements will be reinforced by the specialist knowledge of our course leaders, whose fields of expertise includes data cleansing, data integration, data mining, spatial analysis and predictive analytics.
Their recent research has engaged them in data from crime statistics, natural hazards, public health and business, keeping them at the forefront of new developments in the field.
Our cross-disciplinary approach to the subject means that whatever your area of interest, our researchers will have the experience and expertise to enhance your knowledge and skills.
The taught modules on this course are available to be taken as credit-bearing short courses by suitably qualified individuals.
