Data is becoming increasingly important in today's society with huge quantities being generated by the maritime sector (e.g. fisheries, aquaculture, shipping, exploration, extraction, biotechnology, marine renewables) to address a range of environmental and economically important issues. However, a specific set of skills are required to handle, extract, manipulate, analyse and communicate these data sets.
If you are interested in developing these skills for an exciting career within this sector, we are now recruiting for a new programme for 2017/2018.
This programme is targeted primarily at science or environmental studies graduates wishing to strengthen their data skills.
This programme will produce students who are quantitively competent and literate, capable of interpreting and communicating findings, with work-ready skills (field and industry) to facilitate employment in a competitive marketplace where demand for data-savvy students is high.
