Studying big data

If you’re looking to learn more about big data, we have a number of courses at undergraduate and postgraduate level, and research routes that will allow you to study big data from a number of different perspectives.

We have one of the best mathematics departments in the world, ranked twenty-third in the QS World University Rankings 2013. UK league tables consistently rank us as one of the UK’s top mathematics departments, including the Guardian University Guide 2015 which places Warwick fourth. Our Statistics and Computer Science Departments have similar stories to tell, both offering high-quality teaching complemented by high standards of research.

The options to study big data are not limited to these departments. Perhaps you’re interested in a cyber security course or you want to study the importance of big data in the business environment? Or maybe you’re interested in the challenges and opportunities big data offers to the humanities and social sciences? These are all areas of study you can pursue at either an undergraduate or post-graduate level.
