Next Data Science Certificate Student Meeting:
Thursday January 26th, 2017
School of Public Health I, Suite 7625

This month we will have a video conference session with Khaled Hamdy, Director of Research and Planning at Columbia Business School. Khaled will talk to you about several opportunities, including a summer internship.
Upcoming Opportunities
MIDAS is currently working with several departments for recruiting data science faculty. Occasionally the faculty recruit would like to meet with student groups for a campus tour, coffee or dinner. When these opportunities arise we will alert you and encourage you to sign up, if you are available. 

Important Information

We will be inviting members of the Michigan Data Science Team (MDST) to join our monthly events. You may want to consider MDST and participate in their activities, including challenge competitions.

If you are interested in early exposure to the upcoming MIDAS Data Science and Predictive Analytics MOOC, and would like to act as beta-testers, please contact Prof. Dinov (

If you plan to graduate in WI’17, make sure you have completed all MIDAS Graduate Data Science Certificate Program requirements, including applying to graduate, so that you receive your graduate certificate along with your diploma.
If you plan to graduate in a later term, make sure you are on track.
Prof. Dinov, is available if you need advising.
