Data Science Pathways in Education

The educational goal of TRIPODS@Duke is to develop and implement a Data Science Pathway that targets the entire “data to knowledge to action” pipeline to prepare undergraduates, graduate students, and postdoc trainees in cutting-edge data science research, being able to wrangle and analyze data in a responsible and ethical manner, and being able to work effectively in interdisciplinary teams.
