The MSc in Computational Statistics and Machine Learning teaches advanced analytical and computational skills for success in a data rich world. Designed to be both mathematically rigorous and relevant, the programme covers fundamental aspects of machine learning and statistics, with potential options in information retrieval, bioinformatics, quantative finance, artificial intelligence and machine vision.
The programme, run by the Centre for Computational Statistics and Machine Learning (CSML), is suitable for students with good analytical abilities and is intended as an entrance to a career in either academia or industry. The CSML Centre has excellent links with world-leading companies in internet technology, finance and related information areas. Additionally, the MSc offers a route to embarking on a PhD in machine learning, signal processing, statistics, information processing and retrieval, for which opportunities all exist at UCL.
