Module Coordinator: David Goulding
Module Author: Aengus Daly
Module Description: This module develops within the learner the knowledge, skills, and competences required to research, develop and scope a data science/analytics project, and to successfully complete it in accordance with an approved plan. The module requires the learner either individually or as part of a team to develop, implement and critically assess a detailed methodology to address a defined data science or analytics problem within a prescribed time-frame. The learner is expected to be self motivated whilst working under direction of a project supervisor and to communicate the process and outcomes of their work in a style and manner appropriate for professional practitioners in the discipline.
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Undertake a review of relevant and appropriate literature to determine current knowledge in a field of data science and analytics.
LO2 Conduct a feasibility study of the proposed data science methodologies and technologies.
LO3 Plan the creation of effective final deliverables for a data science/analytics project that will meet the needs of stakeholders and others.
LO4 Systematically review and adapt the employed data science methodologies during implementation in response to practical, real-world constraints.
LO5 Critically assess the project outcomes.
LO6 Use appropriate written and oral communication skills required of a professional practitioner, with a particular emphasis on conveying the underlying message of the research to stakeholders at all stages of the data science/analytics project.
Pre-requisite learning
Module Recommendations
This is prior learning (or a practical skill) that is strongly recommended before enrolment in this module. You may enrol in this module if you have not acquired the recommended learning but you will have considerable difficulty in passing (i.e. achieving the learning outcomes of) the module. While the prior learning is expressed as named CIT module(s) it also allows for learning (in another module or modules) which is equivalent to the learning specified in the named module(s).
