Department Website

Program Description

The joint major in computer and data science trains students to use data science systems, the automated systems that effectively predict outcomes of interest and that extract insights from increasingly large data sets. This training enables students to participate in harnessing the power of data and in influencing policies that will govern the rollout of data science technologies. In addition, students gain the ability to build such systems.

This is an interdisciplinary major comprised of eighteen courses (72 credits) offered by the Department of Computer Science and the Center for Data Science.
