DATA SCIENCE & statistics

Requirements effective Spring Quarter 2016.

Description
The ACMS Data Sciences and Statistics option is designed with strong Statistics and Modeling components.  The track incorporates coursework in Computation, Statistics and Machine Learning, Databases and Data Visualization, as well as topics related to science and society.  This option is unique in its double emphasis on Statistics and Modeling & Scientific Computing.  Our graduates will have a unique blend of skills to build models for data, use them efficiently, and interpret them statistically.
