The MSc Applied Psychology programme is studied over two years on part-time basis. The programme is divided into study units called modules. It includes a range of taught modules together with a dissertation, (normally based on empirical research), carried out by the student. There are three 30 credit modules providing the opportunity to study topics within areas of Research Methods in Applied Psychology, and counselling psychotherapies, and business psychology. In particular the Research Methods module provides the opportunity to develop research and practical skills relevant across all areas of Applied Psychology. These include: qualitative methods, questionnaire and survey methods; methods for the statistical analysis of quantitative data. In addition, practical elements such as developing research proposals and identifying ethical and professional considerations are also covered.[/vc_column_text]
The role of a data scientist is rapidly becoming a required position for any company that wishes to take full advantage of the data they collect. There is an increased demand for professionals that have the correct mix of mathematics, statistics, computer science, business acumen, and the ability to leverage emerging technologies to solve real-life problems. This hands on programme blends practice with theory to equip students with the skills, knowledge, and experience to pursue a career in Data Science. It includes significant time working in laboratories under the supervision of expert teaching staff, many of who have worked in the industry and are leading experts in the area. Students will be exposed to cutting-edge contemporary research activity within data science that will equip research-oriented students with the potential to pursue a research-based career, and, in particular, further PhD study.
Business Information, and using it to increase profitability, is becoming an ever more essential part of running any organisation. This course will train you on how to design and develop information management systems and make the best use of them in the workplace a highly sought-after skill in today’s competitive market. From revenue reports and customer data to figures used to forecast sales and analyze trends, the useful knowledge which organizations can gain from information systems is virtually limitless. Experts who can use the technology intelligently and creatively to add value to a business, combining technical ability with an understanding of an organization’s needs, are in high demand. This course is designed to meet that demand.
This MSc will aim to prepare you to take a leading role in the research and development of future generations of robotics and artificial intelligence systems. Possible employment possibilities of graduates from this programme include working in businesses and projects focusing on security and surveillance (e.g. realised with mobile drones), manufacturing (robotic manipulators), logistics (automated goods delivery), inventory management (automated warehouses), and so on. In the near future robotic and other autonomous systems will be present in virtually every industry, with their global impact estimated to reach $6.5 trillion per year by 2025 (McKinsey). As new markets turn to robotics for the next step in their evolution, the need for qualified robotic engineers has never been greater. Advances in robotics technology continue to push the boundaries of what we previously thought possible. Our degrees equip students with the technical knowledge and project experience for a career as a robotics expert.[/vc_column_text]
