To help bring the application of data science to a variety of fields, Case Western Reserve has developed a unique Applied Data Science undergraduate minor that can be paired with any undergraduate major at Case Western Reserve. The sequence launches in the fall of 2014.
This minor, based in the Case School of Engineering, is open to all undergraduate majors: engineering, arts, sciences, nursing and management.
Students can choose from eight subdomains in which to concentrate their minor, all of which include a core curriculum that includes five 3-credit courses.
Domain areas available for minor concentration are:
Engineering and Physical Sciences
The pathway towards earning the Applied Data Science minor is organized into five levels:
Level 1: Data Science Programming
Level 2: Inferential Statistics
Level 3: Exploratory Applied Data Science
Level 4: Undergraduate Applied Data Science Research
Level 5: Modeling & Prognosticshere
Harnessing the resources of faculty expertise in materials science, electrical engineering and computer science, mechanical and aerospace engineering, systems biology, design and innovation, economics, finance and astronomy, the Applied Data Science minor teaches essential tools and applications within each domain area. This includes:
Students receiving the Applied Data Science minor will become fully proficient in all steps of data analysis and will be able to:
