Advanced Data Science PhD Option

The Department of Biology recognizes that many graduate students will work with large data sets, and expertise in this area is a skill that will benefit students beyond their degree program into a variety of career paths.  As a result, the Department of Biology joined with several other departments on campus to offer a Big Data Science Option for the PhD in Biology degree.

To complete the Big Data Science Option, courses in three of the four areas below must be completed:

-Data Management: CSE 544
-Machine Learning: CSE 546 or STAT 535
-Data Visualization: CSE 512
-Statistics: STAT 509 or STAT 512-513

Students must also register for the Big Data Seminar Course, CHEM E 599F each year.  

To add the Big Data Science Option to your degree, please send an email to Krista Clouser.
