DSCI 6051 - Data Science Capstone Project

Prerequisites: DSCI 6005 , DSCI 6006 . Students may receive exemption from prerequisites at the instructor's discretion.  The final capstone project comprises design and development of the strategic vision and the tactical operation plan for a data science challenge in a specific focus area.  Students will participate in the organization, formulation, implementation, and presentation of the work done in the focus area.  This course will provide the student with an opportunity to apply the data science skills developed in the program to a protracted real world project.  Students will work with an industry partner or government sponsor to leverage a data set provided by the sponsor.  Each student will develop his or her project by constructing a problem statement, proposing a solution, developing an experimental process for achieving a solution, and identifying success criteria for completion to be approved by the supervising faculty member and project sponsor. 3 credits.
