Data Science W210

Capstone

3 units

Course Description

The capstone course will cement skills learned throughout the MIDS program — both core data science skills and “soft skills” like problem-solving, communication, influencing, and management — preparing students for success in the field. The centerpiece is a semester-long group project in which teams of students propose and select project ideas, conduct and communicate their work, receive and provide feedback (in informal group discussions and formal class presentations), and deliver compelling presentations along with a web-based final deliverable. Includes relevant readings, case discussions, and real-world examples and perspectives from panel discussions with leading data science experts and industry practitioners..

Course must be taken for a letter grade to fulfill degree requirements.

Prerequisites

W201, W203, W205, W207, & W209 (previously or concurrently). MIDS students only.
