Data is the driving force behind today's information-based society. There is a rapidly increasing demand for specialists who are able to exploit the new wealth of information in large and complex systems.

The programme focuses on modern methods from machine learning and database management that use the power of statistics to build efficient models, make reliable predictions and optimal decisions. The programme provides students with unique skills that are among the most valued on the labor market.

The rapid development of information technologies has led to the overwhelming of society with enormous volumes of information generated by large or complex systems. Applications in IT, telecommunications, business, robotics, economics, medicine, and many other fields generate information volumes that challenge professional analysts. Models and algorithms from machine learning, data mining, statistical visualization, computational statistics and other computer-intensive statistical methods included in the programme are designed to learn from these complex information volumes. These tools are often used to increase the efficiency and productivity of large and complex systems and also to make them smarter and more autonomous. This naturally makes these tools increasingly popular with both governmental agencies and the private sector.... [-]

Statistical Analysis is one of the basic means of the modern scientific thinking, together with stochastic modeling. Statistical techniques, because of the need of getting accurate and coherent results from the acquired data, are beneficial in many fields, such as business administration, economics, computer, medical sciences, actuary, and administration.

One of the factors behind the need of statistics science is both the theoretical and the practical nature of it. Applied statistics is frequently used by the researchers and administrators, in the process of interpreting and controlling the related stochastic phenomenon. Theoretical statistics presents new procedures with the help of advanced mathematical and calculating methods.... [-]

Master in Applied Statistics (MSc)

Middlesex University London
Campus Full time Part time 1 - 2 years October 2018 United Kingdom London UK Online + 2 more

Often known as the science of uncertainty, statistics - the study of the collection, analysis, interpretation and presentation of data - is a subject that has an impact in almost all sectors of society. Applied statistics involves putting the theory into practice; not only summarising and describing data, but extrapolating from it to draw conclusions. [+]

Our practically-oriented course gives you the skills employers are looking for - not just in terms of statistical knowledge, but transferable skills which will be useful whatever field you decide to work in. There is a shortage of well-qualified statisticians across the scientific, industrial and public sectors and a great demand for data analysts and statistical consultants, which our course has been specifically designed to meet.

Course highlights:

This is an applied course, with a strong emphasis on relating theory to practice, which aims to develop the analytical, logical, numerical and problem-solving skills that are in such demand with employers.
