Education is one of the pillars of the Data Science Institute.

Through educational activities, we strive to create a community in Data Science at Columbia. The capstone project is one of the most lauded elements of our MS in Data Science program. As a final step during their study at Columbia, our MS students work on a project sponsored by a DSI industry affiliate or a faculty member over the course of a semester.

Faculty-Sponsored Capstone Projects

A DSI faculty member proposes a research project and advises a team of students working on this project. This is a great way to run a research project with enthusiastic students, eager to try out their newly acquired data science skills in a research setting. This is especially a good opportunity for developing and accelerating interdisciplinary collaboration.
