Student Opportunities

The Division of Data Sciences is proud to be shaping the landscape of undergraduate data science education. A gaggle of student teams are instrumental in driving the efforts of the Division forward. These students work directly with faculty to create new data science content for courses across campus. They analyze student surveys and course enrollment data and derive conclusions that help shape the future of these programs. They write blog posts, create social media followings, produce videos, and serve as ambassadors of our program everywhere they go. The students are the heart of our program.
