The three specialisation courses in this programme are (1) Data mining and Analysis, (2) Data Visualisation, and (3) Advanced Database Management Systems.

Programme Modules

Research Methods for Computer Science I

Programme Overview

This module is designed for students to develop a comprehensive understanding of research in computer science. The module examines the concepts and theories underlying research, as well as the practice of research. The module has an applied focus. The readings and assignments are designed to identify a feasible research topic and develop a research proposal for an academic project or dissertation. How research problems and questions may be identified, and the process of achieving thoughtful, effective and efficient research design are examined.


The importance of the literature review and how it can be carried out for optimal effectiveness in research are investigated. In addition, the module provides an overview of research methodologies and methods and the techniques of the research process. The philosophical and epistemological assumptions underpinning the research approaches and methodologies, as well as their role in determining the design and implementation of the research, are studied. Besides these aspects, the ethical aspects of research are also addressed.

Algorithms & Data Structures

Programme Overview

You will learn how to analyse and design computer algorithms and data structures. The focus will be on methods for evaluating algorithm efficiency and implementation of various data objects, programming styles, and performance expectations. Course topics will include key areas required to understand algorithmic design patterns, such as data concepts, arrays, stacks, queues, trees, and graphs. You will apply these concepts to create effective programs and solve problems in coding design. In addition, you will learn the importance of enhancing the performance of a program to ensure it is optimised and reusable for overall growth.

£600.00
Computer Architecture

Programme Overview

You will learn how to evaluate a new solution by determining the appropriate computer architectural design to implement for a software program. The core topics focus on understanding critical hardware and software functionality needed to ensure a solution can be designed that will meet the requirements for usability, performance, and support expectations of the program. In addition, you will learn strategies for making architectural decisions critical for successful implementations.

£600.00
Computer Network Security

Programme Overview

You will study key security concepts, security issues and procedures in computer and mobile networks. Topics covered will include learning about the various types of security such as the security of LANs, WANs, databases, and network operating systems. You will analyse threats to computer networks by exploring designs of network infrastructure, potential security flaws, risk assessment and mitigation, and security concepts that impact various communication networks. You will develop knowledge to determine what network security capabilities are needed in architecture and how to apply them based on different situations. As a result, you will get a comprehensive understanding of when to use network intrusion detection and forensics technologies, cryptographic and authentication systems, access control mechanisms, internet routing and other protocols.

Data Mining and Analytics

Programme Overview

You will explore the background of data science, fundamentals of data mining, and data analytics concepts and techniques in business Intelligence. The goal is for you to have a solid foundation in how data mining and analysis works together by understanding data patterns, structures, and useful information to solve real-world problems. You will demonstrate proficiency in programming skills (i.e.: Python, SQL, R or Java) to use algorithms in different languages to build data models, create testing strategies, and analytical methods. As a result, you will gain knowledge of data processing, design, and implementation of data warehouse, customer relationship management (CRM), and OLAP (online analytical processing) systems for emerging applications examples (i.e. eCommerce platforms). 

£600.00
Data Visualisation

Programme Overview

You will receive an introduction to data visualisation to understand how data is analysed and viewed by creating interactive dashboards in a graphical representation such as infographics. You will use best practices to design and map data interactions that allow various stakeholder audiences to intuitively explore the dataset and the impacts on a business area. As a result, you will understand the architecture needed to support various visualisation tools, methodologies, and techniques to identify trends in data by analysing various situations.

£600.00
Data Warehousing and Data Mining

Programme Overview

You will learn the fundamentals of data warehousing and data mining. You will gain a deeper understanding of how data mining is used through hands-on experience in various areas such as big data analysis, prediction, classification, identification, clustering, and association. In addition, you will learn how data mining and databases work hand-in-hand from a user perspective in various data modelling, statistical analysis, designing schemas, querying databases, and manipulating databases. By the end of the course, you will understand key strategies on how to apply data mining technology to real-world applications, evaluate trends, and optimal design solutions.

£600.00
Machine Learning

Programme Overview

You will gain foundational knowledge on the importance of machine learning in artificial intelligence and explore modern algorithms in machine learning, focusing on practical applications to understand how to structure data into models that can be created and utilised. Throughout the course, there will be a core emphasis on how to understand the components needed when using data and information to develop such as software libraries, regression, classification, mixture models, neural networks, deep learning, ensemble methods and reinforcement learning. In addition, you will have knowledge of machine learning techniques and how they can be applied in various processes and real-world solutions.
