Overview

Urban informatics is the study of how rich behavioural data from cities and their citizens can be collected, analysed, understood, and communicated through computation. We seek to inform improvements that can increase the wellbeing of city residents, whether by government organisations or industries involved in providing services in cities. Our Urban Informatics MSc equips students with the technical, analytical, and communication skills required to conduct effective urban data analysis, with experience of detailed case study topics and the communication of results to effect change.

Course detail

The first term provides foundation modules in core data science techniques, the theories underlying the study of cities, and ways to communicate analyses so as to affect policy- making. The second term focuses on data analysis for cities, providing insight into both spatial and network analysis as well as providing more depth on data mining techniques. In term two you will also take a specialised module exploring one aspect of city life, such as air pollution or mental health, in real depth and detail. This provides a testbed for the analysis techniques learnt, enabling students to develop confidence and experience with handling urban data. In the summer term you will also engage in a substantive individual project – connected to our research interests – tackling one of a range of urban informatics topics.

Teaching and assessment

We use lectures and computer lab sessions to deliver most of the modules on the course. You will also be expected to undertake a significant amount of independent study. Typically, one credit equates to 10 hours of work, e.g. 150 hours work for a 15-credit module. These hours cover every aspect of the module: lectures, tutorials, independent study, coursework and preparation for examinations. The assessment for this degree is primarily through written reports, software-based data analyses, and written examinations. You may also be assessed by oral presentation, class tests, projects and data visualisation or infographics. The nature of assessment varies by module.

Career prospects

Urban Informatics MSc equips you for future opportunities within business, government, NGOs and the third sector, where expertise in using analytics and data science to solve urban problems is increasingly essential.

Requisitos de admissão

Para estudantes do(s)/da Estados Unidos

Students who have completed a Bachelor degree from a recognised institution in the United States of America will be considered. Grades may vary depending upon the course chosen.

Para estudantes internacionais

Students should have an upper Second Class degree (2.1) in Computer Science (or related disciplines). An Upper Second in a quantitative subject containing a substantial statistical component will be also be considered, or Geography where this includes a geocomputation component. A Lower Second class degree, or degree in a different quantitative discipline (e.g. Pure Maths, Physics, Mathematical Economics, Mathematical Psychology) may be permitted if the candidate has subsequent work experience in large-scale data analysis of at least 2 years duration. Students without First or Upper Second Class degree in Mathematical Statistics or Computer Science but having relevant post- graduate experience may be interviewed to assess their level of competency. Students can demonstrate their English Language Proficiency with any of the following tests and grades: IELTS (Academic): 6.5 overall with a minimum of 6.0 in each skill; TOEFL IBT: 92 overall, with a minimum 23 in each skill.

Os requisitos para o IELTS podem variar de acordo com o curso que você escolher.
