Data Science Society

Our data science society is a student association that tackles business problems at little to no monetary cost. Student teams of 3-6 partner on your business-driven project to deliver your more minor data science needs.


  • Hours: The student teams put in 4-8 hours a week and meet on Wednesdays at 6 pm Mountain as project teams. The projects last 10-11 weeks.
  • Skill Level: Many of the students are in their second or third year of the program. They have experience with Python and R.
  • Project Examples: Clients have us build Shiny, Streamlit, or PowerBI dashboards. We also tackle data automation requests (web scraping, API use, data munging).


Many of these projects are proof-of-concept projects. Upperclass data science students are project managers and technical experts. A faculty mentor oversees the student leadership team that supports the project managers.
