Interdisciplinary Training in Data Science for Graduate Students

IDEAS (Integrated Data Driven Discovery in Earth and Astrophysical Sciences) is a multi-faceted program designed for masters and PhD graduate students. All participants in the program have, as a focus of their research, one of three major research projects: Earthscope, LIGO, or LSST.

Graduate students take specific coursework leading to a certificate in integrated data science.

Students:

  • Participate in summer-schools focused on data visualization & computer programming
  • Engage in science communication workshops
  • Develop a citizen science project related to their research focus
  • Complete an internship
  • Have the opportunity to participate in other data science-focused activities which increase their professional connections and the strengths necessary for successful careers in academia, as well as the professional sector
