Autumn 2021 Showcase Event, November 18th from 3pm to 6pm in Alder Commons
Recorded Launch Event from Autumn 2020: Minor Launch
This course is designed for juniors and seniors pursuing the interdisciplinary data science minor. In this seminar style course, we will encourage students to reflect on their coursework and experiences in order to identify their skills, strengths and interests. We will support students contextualizing their academic experiences in order to articulate their skillset to employers, graduate schools, and other post graduate opportunities. This course will rely on reflection activities, guest speakers, alumni connections, and small group discussions to build community while helping students build a framework for connecting their minor and major coursework. We hope students complete the course with the tools to reflect, identify, create, and make progress towards short and long term goals after their time at UW. Course will be offered Winter 2022.
The eScience Institute empowers researchers and students in all fields to answer fundamental questions through the use of large, complex, and noisy data. As the hub of data-intensive discovery on campus, we lead a community of innovators in the techniques, technologies, and best practices of data science and the fields that depend on them.
