Data Core

The Data Science and Software Engineering Core is a team of data scientists and software engineers that supports research and development.

We partner with faculty researchers, industry, government, and nonprofits to drive innovative solutions to data science and related software engineering problems.

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 Affiliate Program

Collaboration with impact. The Industry Affiliates Program supports industry partners with recruiting data science students, collaborating on research challenges, and utilizing our extensive University resources.

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.

Postdoctoral Program

Through the CDS Postdoctoral Fellowship Program, The Center for Data Science provides funding in support of postdoctoral researchers. The Center has provided funding to postdocs in a range of research labs at UMass Amherst.
