Abstract: Data Science Clinic Info Session

Join us November 3rd for an informational session on the Data Science Clinic, a new project-based class where students work on real-world projects with industry, public interest organizations, and research labs. The Data Science Clinic course (DATA 27100 and CAPP 30300/PPHA 30581/MACS 30300) gives students the opportunity to gain data science experience with guidance from expert mentors. Teams of students work on real-world projects that transcend the conventional classroom experience, including working with imperfect datasets, applying models and algorithms to real-world data, navigating security and privacy issues, communicating results to a diverse set of stakeholders, and developing software prototypes.

At the info session, clinic leadership will preview the new projects and partners, discuss details of the course and how it fits within the new undergraduate data science major, and past participants will provide examples from previous data science clinic projects. This event will take place both in person at the John Crerar Library building, Room 390, and online via Zoom. Please register with your preference for in-person or remote attendance, and we will follow up with further details.
