Make a difference. Use data to solve global hunger or drive better business decisions. Maybe one day you could shape a hurricane disaster response plan, improve self-driving cars or define a military defense strategy.
Challenge yourself. Engage your quantitative and creative side. You’ll learn to apply the technical fundamentals of data science to data analysis pipelines and develop the knowledge and skills to transform data into insights.
