Dr Pimbblet said: “This was fantastic news for the University as it aligns with the University’s social justice strategy of supporting disadvantaged and underrepresented students. The award demonstrates the reputation of our Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Data Science course.”
The Centre has been running a highly successful MSc conversion course since its inception in 2020, supporting hundreds of students to develop their data science and AI skills and progressing them into a wide range of UK industries, including finance, retail, energy, and beyond.
DAIM students cover programming, statistics, machine learning, big data, data visualisation, computer vision and the ethical and legal responsibilities of using data.
Graduates will be able to apply AI and data science techniques to real-world problems, critically evaluate AI and data science methodologies, plan, design and carry out empirical research, and interpret, present and communicate the outcomes of data science and AI solutions.
Exclusive Team GB University Partnership
Now in its fifth year, the University’s partnership with Team GB has resulted in remarkable opportunities for our students, staff, and partner schools and colleges. Students and staff shared in the excitement of this special relationship during the build-up to Olympic Games.
The University is the first and only University to be an Official Partner of Team GB. The exclusive partnership covers a six-year period and includes the Tokyo 2020 and Paris 2024 Summer Olympic Games and the Beijing 2022 Olympic Winter Games. Team GB triple Olympic Champion Max Whitlock OBE is an ambassador for the University.
In May, Max joined staff and students on campus to discuss mental health as part of mental health awareness week.
Since the partnership was announced in January 2019, a varied range of opportunities has been provided to staff and students – including volunteering, work experience, motivational talks, sports-related benefits, and studying initiatives.
It’s also brought some of Team GB’s most accomplished and inspirational athletes to the University’s campus.
