DS 4993: Independent Study in Data Science
Credits: 1–4
Reading and research under the direction of a faculty member. Students must obtain approval from a faculty advisor to approve and direct the independent study. Final approval by the Director of Undergraduate Programs is also required.
DS 6050: Deep Learning
Credits: 3
A graduate-level course on deep learning fundamentals and applications with emphasis on their broad applicability to problems across a range of disciplines. Topics include regularization, optimization, convolutional networks, sequence modeling, generative learning, instance-based learning, and deep reinforcement learning. Students will complete several substantive programming assignments. A course covering statistical techniques such as regression.
DS 6999: Independent Study
Credits: 1–12
Graduate-level independent study conducted under the supervision of a specific instructor(s)
DS 8998: Master's Level Thesis Research
Credits: 1–12
Engages students in identification of a research question, a review of the literature and the application of an existing data science tool or technique (algorithm) to that problem. This is a mentored experience and will allow the student to demonstrate their capacity for research and begin to develop a relationship with a faculty mentor in Data Science. Course requires instructor permission.
