Our Computational Ecology MSc gives you knowledge and skills to work with ecological ‘big data’. It focuses on mathematical and statistical theory necessary for data interpretation and analysis. This course addresses the severe shortage of scientists trained to a high standard in both data modelling and ecology. Ecological and environmental scientists now generate large amounts of observational data. The data could be from:

camera traps
GPS records
eDNA samples
Due to the unique combination of ecology and big data, the course is suitable for:

ecologists involved in scientific research
graduates in mathematics or computing
As an interdisciplinary course, some modules are unique whilst others are shared with other courses. This ensures that you will gain:

detailed technical skills needed by future employers
understanding of the broader ecological context of data collection
