Overview

The concept and skill of a programming language are the crucial basis for skills in data base programming and management, in developing data processing pipelines and in organising and analysing large and massive data sets. The Mathematics and Data Science course will introduce you to programming language Python and R for statistical analysis and data visualisation. In your third year and fourth year, analysing data and methods in group projects will be essential capstone modules for the learning outcomes of the course.

Your future

Demand for skilled graduates in the areas of mathematics, big data and data science is growing rapidly in both the public and private sector, and there is a predicted shortage of data scientists with the skills to understand and make commercial decisions based on the analysis of big data. An incredible 89% of our undergraduate maths students are in employment or further study (Graduate Outcomes 2020).

A successful career in data science requires you to possess truly interdisciplinary knowledge, so we’ll ensure you graduate with a wide-ranging yet specialised set of skills in this area. You are taught mainly within our Department of Mathematical Sciences and our School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering, but also benefit from input from our Essex Business School, and our Essex Pathways Department. Mathematicians and data scientists are required in every sector, carrying out statistical analysis or mining data on social media, so our course can open the door to almost any industry, from health, to government, to publishing.

The University of Essex  is bridging the gap between academia and business, and we are at the forefront of helping the UK grasp the big data opportunities to get ahead in the global race. Our graduates in data science have been very successful in finding employment in the public sector, consulting, technology, retail, and utilities, while a number have gone on to postgraduate study or research.
