A new non-thesis master’s degree at Colorado School of Mines will prepare scientists, engineers, economists and more to harness the torrent of large and complex digital data that has become ubiquitous throughout society.

Launching this fall, the Data Science graduate program at Mines will address the unique needs of data-driven discovery and data-supported decision making, offering rigorous training in computer science and statistics while also giving students the space to develop a focused area of application based on their individual interests and career goals.

The data science graduate program is targeted toward both recent bachelor degree graduates looking to expand their knowledge base and employment opportunities, as well as working professionals who have recognized the need for data science skills in their current or future careers. Domestic applications for Fall 2019 are being accepted through July 1. For more information, go to datascience.mines.edu.
