Data Science for Global Agriculture, Food and Environment Postgraduate degree – funding options available

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 estimates 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. This is where our Data Science for Global Agriculture, Food and Environment Degree comes in.

Also available as a purely online degree, this new course, the first and only of its kind in the UK, seeks to address the huge demand for data scientists in the agri-tech, smart farming and conservation sector.

  • Successfully obtain and analyse data in order to produce descriptive and predictive recommendations.
  • Apply machine learning and artificial intelligence tools to solve a wide range of problems in science and business
  • Use contemporary techniques and tools to communicate data successfully
  • Help agri-food companies make smarter business decisions and to solve conservation challenges
  • novel research techniques

Why Harper Adams?

Having been at the forefront of agricultural education for over 100 years, where better to study than with us!

Our students see theory in action, are taught literally in the field, carry out experiments, conduct field trials, and then analyse their own samples in our ever-expanding laboratory complex, within a vibrant research and teaching environment – and all without leaving the campus.

Set on a 494-hectare farm, our Harper campus is home to the cutting-edge; such as our Agricultural Engineering Innovation Centre, where the future of farming is being pioneered with agricultural robots; the Elizabeth Creak Science Laboratories and a new robotic dairy – to name but a few. All our students have access to this technology and we wholeheartedly encourage exploration and research throughout your degree.

Speaking of research, Harper Adams is a recognised centre of research excellence with the 2021 Government Research Excellence Framework rating 60 per cent of the university’s research as “world leading” or “internationally excellent” – an almost ten per cent increase since our previous submission.
