The overarching goal of the Data Science Lab is to provide a team-learning experience for students who are interested in data science and analytics.

Students are introduced to important concepts, models, processes, and techniques of analytics for modern organizations and conduct hands-on data science projects, leveraging strong statistical and machine learning skills with software engineering and data management to build, evaluate, and deploy analytical models. The broad availability of data has led to increasing interest in the business application of analytics and data science. Students have the opportunity to work on real-world projects to help companies generate new business insights and facilitate data-driven decision making. The lab is directed by CISAT Assistant Professor Yan Li.
