Oregon's Data Science Initiative
Making decisions earlier, faster, better.
The University of Oregon will open a new School of Computer and Data Sciences in fall 2023. The school will combine the university’s growing strength in computer science with its five-year investment in data science. The new school, housed within the College of Arts and Sciences, will offer classes to all UO students and will also be a home to research and experiential education activities.
Seven undergraduate data science students walked the stage in spring 2022 to collect their diplomas, an exciting moment for the university’s new data science degree program. The graduates are among the first to enter the program that launched in fall 2020 as part of the UO’s Presidential Initiative in Data Science. The initiative is one of Provost and Senior Vice President Patrick Phillips’ strategic priorities.
The University of Oregon is part of a new National Science Foundation-funded effort that will help data scientists collaborate on efforts to address societal issues.
The UO’s new data science degree teaches students how to extract knowledge and insight from data – empowering you to launch directly from the classroom to the field.
UO researchers awarded data science seed funding grants
The grants encourage new faculty partnerships and the development of innovative research and educational programs in data science.
