DSCI 400, Data Science Capstone Lab
In this course, students work on teams to complete a team-defined data science project.
Intended for DSCI minor students and non-seniors who have some background in data science and want to learn how to design a data science pipeline to answer questions and tell a story through data.
Counts as a DSCI minor capstone, ELEC junior lab.
DSCI 435 / 535 & COMP 449 / 549, Applied Machine Learning & Data Science Projects
In this course, students will work on interdisciplinary teams to solve a real-world data science project with clients from a variety of industries and disciplines.
Intended for seniors (some advanced juniors), professional masters, and beginning PhD students who have advanced coursework and expertise in some area of data science and want to complete a challenging, real-world data science project.
Counts as a DSCI minor capstone, Stat senior capstone, MEE capstone, and as an elective for ELEC, COMP, STAT, and CAAM undergrad and grad students.
We anticipate having about 15 projects in the fall. These are industry-sponsored (finance, energy, healthcare, tech), community impact projects (government and non-profits), and research projects (working with Rice or medical center faculty).
Students can specify project preferences through the course application process at the beginning of fall semester.
DSCI 415 / 515, Data Science Consulting
Students in this course advise clients from Rice and beyond in a data science consulting clinic, learn best practices in consulting, and gain exposure to a variety of real data science problems.
Intended for undergrad and grad students (especially PhD students) with advanced coursework and expertise in some areas of data science.
Great exposure to practical and applied data science problems with many opportunities for collaborative research projects or further consulting.
How to Apply
Students may register for these courses, but your spot in the class is not guaranteed until you complete a course application the first week of class in August 2020 and are placed onto a team. Students who do not meet the course pre-requisites and who did not get placed on teams will be asked to drop the class.
