CWRU Applied Data Science Program Recognized in the New York Times

In an article written by John Hanc in the Education Section of the New York Times, CWRU was praised specifically for its flexible minor programs. It highlights the attractive Applied Data Science Minor offered through the CWRU Department of Engineering.

"Case Western’s minor in applied data science, for example, funnels students into this hot field from other disciplines. The students learn skills like data management, distributed computing, informatics and statistical analytics.

The Case minor has attracted students from majors like arts and sciences, engineering, business and health care. Graduates enter the market with an important and salable credential. A 2016 poll conducted by Gallup for the Business-Higher Education Forum found that 69 percent of employers expected that by 2021, candidates with data science skills would get preference for jobs in their organizations."

Undergraduates can choose from eight subdomains (Energy, Manufacturing, Astronomy, Translational Health, Clinical Health, Finance, Marketing, and Economics) in which to concentrate their minor, all of which include a core curriculum that includes five 3-credit courses to teach essential tools and applications within each area.
