BS in Information: Information Analysis Path
The courses allow students to identify and articulate questions that matter to stakeholders, gather essential data, find answers that are grounded in empirical evidence, and present answers convincingly.
Programs with Data Science Components
Master of Science in Survey and Data Science
Survey methodology combines knowledge from sociology, psychology, statistics, and data science. Students take courses from each of these areas, and will specialize in Survey Methods, Survey Statistics, or Data Science.
Graduate Certificate Program in Computational Discovery and Engineering
This program trains students to conduct computationally intensive research, and prepares them for interdisciplinary research and product development that employ high-performance computing.
ICPSR Summer Program in Quantitative Methods for Social Research
This program offers over 80 courses on a broad range of methodologies and techniques that are relevant for research in the social, behavioral, and health sciences.
Certificate in Survey Methodology
Offered to graduate students in departments other than the survey methodology program, this is a two-year, part-time program.
Ph.D. Program in Scientific Computing
The joint Ph.D. in Scientific Computing is intended for students who will make extensive use of large-scale computation, computational methods, or algorithms for advanced computer architectures in their studies.
The Data Science Student Experience
Watch U-M Data Science students give presentations to the 2020 NxtGen Summer Academy talking about the work and research they are doing in Data Science.
The Current State of Data Science
The Importance of Access in Data Science
Career Options/Professional Paths in Data Science
Community Data Science Project Examples
MIDAS organizes many events throughout the year specifically geared towards students’ technical skill development, job search and career preparation, and engagement with industry professionals in the data science field.
DATA CHALLENGES AND HACKATHONS
Participating as either teams or individuals, students use real world data sets from industry sponsors, community organizations, or University research projects to answer pre-defined research questions. Often run as competitions, MIDAS aims to promote student work by using judges from industry that may (and many times do) offer outstanding participants internship and permanent job opportunities.
Students learn about how data science is utilized in industry and how best to prepare for careers through conversations with real-world professionals. Sessions are either centered around a theme (interviewing, company specific job openings, etc.) or feature panelists from various fields to give a broad overview of career opportunities in data science.
