DS590 Data Science in Practice is a graduate course designed to help students gain critical, practical skills in applying data science to real world problems. Students will work in teams of 3-5 to tackle a real-world problem defined by a project sponsor. Project sponsors can be academics or industry practitioners. Students work with the project sponsor to understand the problem domain, identify where their data science skills can be applied, and to design, implement and test a solution. During the course, students also study aspects of data science consulting and project management through weekly reading assignments. The course is designed for second-year MS data science students. After completing this course, students will have practical experience working in a team using their skills to solve a real data science problem in an application domain; and understand multiple perspectives on data science consulting and project management.
