All students gain real world experience for nine months out of the twelve month program (15 hours/week) tackling data science and analytics problems at companies around the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond.
Our faculty represent the fundamental multidisciplinary nature of the big data industry. They’re traditional academics and data scientists actively working in the field, using real industry experience to inspire their instruction.
Amazon Web Services Partnership
Through a partnership with AWS Educate and USF's Data Institute, each student receives significant support in the form of credits to gain crucial familiarity and experience across their suite of technologies, including RedShift and EC2.
Data Science Boot Camp
The program begins with our boot camp, an intensive review of the foundational knowledge and skills required for success in the MSDS program.
