Inaugural Cohort of Introduction to Data Science Class

This spring 2020 is the first Introduction to Data Science class, being held in the Active Learning Lab of Moody Library and also being concurrently taught at Colorado School of Mines.  The class is being team taught by a group of five faculty that includes both statisticians and computer scientists. This prerequisite-free class is designed to introduce students to principles of data science through the R programming language and real, hands-on datasets. It is part of the National Science Foundation funded Data Science Corps Award, titled Modernizing Water and Wastewater Treatment through Data Science Education and Research (MoWaTER).  The class precedes a five-week summer internship program.  More details can be found on the MoWaTER webpage: www.baylor.edu/mowater
