Data Science for the Common Good

Data Science for the Common Good (DS4CG) is a summer program that trains aspiring data scientists to work on real-world problems that benefit the common good.

Our teams of computer science Master’s students collaborate with researchers, nonprofit organizations, and government agencies working in public health, education, environmental conservation, and more.

Industry Mentorship Program

The Industry Mentorship Program matches small teams of Data Science MS students with an industry-sponsored project. Over the course of an academic semester, each team works under the guidance of an industry mentor, a PhD student supervisor, and faculty domain experts.
