Industrial and Social Impact

Solutions to Real-World Data Science Challenges

D2K Capstone students work on industry-sponsored (finance, energy, healthcare, tech) projects, community impact (government and non-profit) projects. At the end of the semester, students will present their work, compete for prizes and showcase their impact in the D2K Showcase. Learn more about our impact >>

The Future of Data Science

We need people who can transform data into actionable knowledge.

The D2K Capstone helps students gain technical and practical skills, and prepares them to become the next generation of data scientists, analysts, and computational engineers. Many of our students continue working with clients through an internship or a full-time position.
