Education, learning and development are at the heart of The Campus’s aims. In 2018, 32 students registered on the Masters in Data Analytics for Government (MDataGov) which is a collaborative project between the Data Science Campus, ONS Learning Academy and academic partners across the UK.
MDataGov students engage in a wide variety of data science and analytics projects, utilising tools like distributed computing platforms, natural language processing, machine learning and advanced statistical modelling.
To mark the two-year anniversary of the Data Science Campus, staff and current and former MDataGov students attended the second annual MDataGov symposium in Manchester to look back on a wide array of projects. The Symposium hosted presentations and discussions on the Government’s data science challenges and how MDataGov students have applied their new-found skills to face them.
