There is a huge skills gap in the UK workforce when it comes to data science and artificial intelligence. The Government’s Digital Skills strategy states that within the next 20 years, 90 per cent of all jobs will require some element of digital skills, with data science pinpointed as a priority area for investment.
At the same time, the agri-food sector is a radical shift in demand for data scientists, thanks to applications in agri-tech, and smart farming and a large surge in demand for general skills using big data and open data across the sector through 2030. This new course, the first and only of its kind in the UK, seeks to address these dual challenges.
This course is ideal for candidates with a background in agricultural or food science who wish to train in data science to allow them to take a smarter approach to business and for those who have a background in data science but wish to progress into the agri-food sector, where rapid development in technology is pushing demand for experts in data analysis.
Students will also achieve PGCert and PGDip awards.
Harper Adams University has been providing world-leading, specialist education in the fields of agriculture, farming, and animal science for 120 years. It is now the UK’s market leader, by share*, for postgraduate degrees in agricultural and veterinary subjects.
It offers Masters programmes developed in conjunction with industry in a range of topics related to agricultural production, agri-tech, food industry management, global agri-business, ecology, conservation, forestry, land management, rural law, veterinary professions, mechatronic engineering and data science. Several routes are unique to Harper Adams in the UK, including entomology and plant pathology.
Postgraduate courses are heavily influenced by the unique, world-leading research being conducted at the university.
