The University of Wisconsin–Madison’s School of Computer, Data & Information Sciences is adding three new degree programs to its growing portfolio to meet mounting interest from employers and students and increase access to technology curriculum at the university.
Technical expertise in computer and data science is essential for building systems that pave the way for innovation and transformation. At the same time, understanding how to ethically apply computing and data science is becoming more integral to professions beyond technology-specific fields. To meet the evolving needs of today’s data-driven world, CDIS’s will offer new master’s degrees in data science and in data engineering and a new bachelor’s of arts or bachelor’s of science degree in information science.
The new degree programs, which will launch in the fall, are designed to increase skills that are in high demand, preparing a talent pipeline that will drive economic growth in the region and beyond.
