Hi mobagetes,

Apologies for the delay in us replying to you. I am a current MSc Data Analytics student at Strathclyde University, and I am writing to you to share some of my experience, opinions and views about the course.

In general, Strathclyde is a very good university. Degrees obtained from Strathclyde Business School (SBS) are highly valuable and recognized world wide (MSc Data Analytics and BAC are SBS degrees) as it has a triple accreditation. Students and faculty are very friendly and helpful. I have never faced any problem here till date whatsoever.
Now, about the course. MSc Data Analytics is a newly introduced course at the university (I am part of it's first batch of students). Note that here MSc is Management Science, and not Master of Science. The interesting part, and the most crucial aspect about the course is that it will be a mix of Management Science, Mathematics & Statistics and Computer & Information Science subjects. So you will get a good mixture of subject knowledge from all three departments. You will not feel like the course is technically intensive or that you are doing too much of one subject. The course has been designed and structured in collaboration with industry experts and standards. So, you will be taught the subjects that are most required in the job market.It is a good course and as you know, it is one of the upcoming fields with great scope for employment in almost any part of the world, as almost all organizations and companies need Data Analysts, Data Scientists to analyze company data and make sound and informed decisions. Forbes research recently showed that by 2020, there will be a requirement of ~200,000 personnel for data-oriented roles. It will also be one of the few six-figure salary jobs by then. You can imagine that, as the world is becoming digital day by day, and Machine Learning and AI taking over many of the regular day to day jobs. Now coming back to the topic, good Maths skills is very advantageous, especially in Statistics. If you are good at programming, that is another plus. The main languages you have to work with in this course are, R and Python. If you look at data-oriented role specifications, employers are keen on taking candidates who have experience in working with these two languages. So, if you can take any online crash courses on these two prior to joining the course, it would be a bonus. Both of these are extremely important for the course, although you will be taught these from scratch. A couple of other important points are:1. Since it is a one year Masters course, you will receive assignments and projects simultaneously for all subjects. So, be prepared to manage your time well2. You will have to write-up reports and essays. So, make sure your writing skills are top notchI hope this information helps and answers your questions. Please don't hesitate to ask if you have any further queries.Thanks and regards,[color=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.901960784313726)]kmvit[/color]
