Data Science Synoptic Project & End Point Assessment

60 Credits

This module is a data science project, conceived and executed by the learner in an external organisation. The project will demonstrate a high-level of technical and analytical skill, aligned to achieving organisational goals and enabling effective institutional change. The project may focus on any element of the data science workflow and will culminate with a dissertation. The dissertation will combine technical research with organisational needs and project management and will enable the learner to deepen his or her understanding of a particular area of data science. Project assessment includes a compulsory knowledge test and professional discussion (viva voce examination) at the end of the process, as per the end point assessment for apprenticeships (see EPA for Data Scientist [Integrated Degree] apprenticeship, for more details).
