UMAss Data Science Club

Our club strives to create a community for UMass Amherst undergraduates who share a common interest in data science. We aim to provide members with the experience they need to achieve their data science goals by conducting group projects, utilizing graduate school resources, providing career advice, and facilitating industry connections.

National Student Data Science Corps

The NSDC Institutional Chapter at University of Massachusetts Amherst was built with the aim to create a safe space where students and researchers from all studies can educate each other, share knowledge and techniques applying data science, and promote camaraderie.
