A modern and dynamic curriculum is important to the success of any academic program. Curriculum should evolve over time so that the knowledge and skill-set acquired by students ensure success in their forthcoming careers. The Computer Science and Statistics programs at Winona State University worked collaboratively to create a comprehensive data science program to meet the increasing demand for individuals who retain the skills necessary to work as data scientists. Details regarding the rationale, development, and implementation of an undergraduate data science program will be presented.
Christopher Malone is a Professor of Statistics and Data Science in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Winona State University. He is an active leader in the Statistics Education community and was instrumental in the development of the undergraduate Data Science program at Winona State. Dr. Malone is Director of the Statistical Consulting Center and has co-organized the Midwest Undergraduate Data Analytics Competition for the past four years.
Sponsored by the Department of Mathematical Sciences, Dean of the College of Letters and Science.
