THE REGION’S CENTER FOR DATA SCIENCE EDUCATION AND RESEARCH HAS MADE IT OFFICIAL.
Uniquely centered in the hub of big data, UNC Charlotte has created the Carolinas’ first School of Data Science, tapping the region’s expansive ecosystem of research, industry, and community engagement to apply a visionary lens to the education and application of data science. UNC Charlotte is meeting the demands of our region and nation’s workforce head-on through the School of Data Science (SDS). The SDS is the product of an innovative collaboration between five Colleges: The Belk College of Business, The College of Computing and Informatics, The College of Health and Human Services, The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and The William States Lee College of Engineering.
Data is everywhere. In fact, more data was generated in the last two years than throughout the preceding entirety of human history. This reality is helping to fuel one of the country’s most burgeoning and critically important industries — data science. With a record-breaking 30,000 students and counting, this growing research powerhouse is responsible for developing and educating the region’s most robust talent pipeline, creating real-world solutions for today’s evolving business and community needs.
