Oregon's Data Science Initiative
Making decisions earlier, faster, better.
Seven undergraduate data science students will walk the stage this spring 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.
