This excellent new programme brings together local employers with academics. This was advocated by Customer Insight Leader blog, based on the experience of Scottish clients. It is good to see the University of South Wales (USW) adopt such an approach. Even better to see them also respond to our call to not overlook “Softer Skills”.
During this MSc in Data Science, graduates have the opportunity to learn a wide range of the skills needed (both technical & softer skills). Importantly, through effective partnerships, they also have opportunity to experience four difference placements. This enables Data Science students to learn a wider range of approaches, to real world problems.
Such cooperation between academic & commercial expertise is one of the reasons USW achieves 95% graduate employment (within 6 months). Laughlin Consultancy is proud to collaborate with such an approach. Helping to develop the next generation of Welsh Data Scientists.
