Data Science

DATA 510 Capstone Project (4)

Over the course of the semester, students will propose, plan and execute an actual data science project. Run as an independent study during the student’s last term, the project provides an opportunity to integrate all of the core skills learned throughout the program, and to develop a portfolio piece that can help with students’ career aspirations. Projects must be consequential in nature—i.e., have a real (or potential) impact on some organization, or the world. Grades will be based on assessments by both the faculty advisor and those (potentially) impacted by the project’s results. Data sets must be selected by the student either from a public repository or from the company for which they work and approved by the course instructor within the first two weeks of the term.
