Postgraduate Diploma in Science in Data Analytics

Programme Purpose

The Postgraduate Diploma in Science in Data Analytics is an embedded exit award in the Master of Science in Data Analytics. It has been designed to meet the growing need for practical applied skills in this emerging area and is for learners who cannot complete the full Master’s award. Semester one (FT) lays the groundwork for the programme and encompasses mostly foundational modules that focus on providing a solid and comprehensive understanding of the relevant concepts, a proficiency in the use of programming skills to gather, analyse, process and visualise data, statistics for data analytics and the application of pattern recognition in machine learning. Learners develop advanced applied skills in essential areas such as programming, statistical tools and techniques, techniques for pattern recognition on complex data sets, while also offering theoretical knowledge of cognitive science. Semester two (FT) builds on this by covering advanced modules in which the knowledge, understanding and skills acquired in the first semester can be employed. Semester two modules offer applied skills in topics such as data and network mining, databases and data storage, graph, data visualisation including foundations in linguistics, statistical analysis and applications. In addition, the programme aims to incorporate advanced transversal skills in each module for the professional development of learners to enhance their employability options. This will enable the learner to integrate seamlessly into an organisation by addressing skills such as leadership, problem solving, teamwork, time management and structured writing that are essential for a Level 9 graduate. It is a 1-year full-time, 18 months part-time programme with five 10 ECTS and two 5 ECTS taught modules.
