1-on-1 learning and original research projects customized around students' interests
A quickly expanding field, data scientists work on a wide array of topics, limited only by the data that can be collected in a given domain. A mentorship in data science allows students to take large banks of existing data that is not necessarily useful on its own, and combine it with data points from other sources to generate novel insights.
Students can expect to improve domain knowledge (information about a specific topic), programming skills, and statistics. Many students will apply machine learning algorithms to produce artificial intelligence which in turn yields insights that translate into improved value or profit.
