The MSc Spatial Data Science and Visualisation is an interdisciplinary course designed to raise awareness of new task-specific techniques that have emerged as part of the online revolution.
CASA has been at the forefront of the changes that have impacted the way we share, communicate and distribute information, specifically information relating directly to geographic and spatial entities. These changes have steadily emerged since the mid 1990s and it is clear that location and space now represent a third force in information technology besides more traditional computer and communication science.
The programme consists of four core modules (60 credits), two elective modules, a group project (30 credits) and a dissertation (60 credits).
The course runs full time over 12 months starting late September, a part-time option over is available which is typically completed within 2 years, but can be spread over 5. The taught element of the full-time course is usually delivered on two days per week, for part-time study this is limited to one day per week.
