Data Science

This collaborative program establishes pathways for data science training through coursework and real-world projects, connecting three main public higher education institutions in California (UCSB, Cal Poly, City College). Students will learn the underlying principles of data science, including data-generating processes and the role of measurement, ethics and privacy, information-processing tools for harnessing the power of big data, and the oral and written communication skills necessary for pursuing effective professional careers in the field. Each year culminates in a year-long capstone course synthesizing and applying previously learned tools and techniques in a large-scale project.
