NASEM Webinar: Data Science for Undergraduates – Opportunities & Options

By | Al Hero, Educational, News

As our economy, society, and daily life become increasingly dependent on data, new college graduates entering the workforce need to have the skills to analyze data effectively.

At the request of the National Science Foundation, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine organized a study to explore what data science skills are essential for undergraduates and how academic institutions should structure their data science education programs.

We invite you to join us for a report release webinar on May 2, 2018 at 11am ET.

During this webinar, study co-chairs Laura Haas and Alfred Hero will discuss the report’s findings and recommendations, followed by a question and answer session with webinar participants. Learn more about the study, download the interim and final reports, and watch past webinars on the study webpage at nas.edu/EnvisioningDS.
