About this Course

What is INLS 792?

INLS 792: Applied Data Science Practicum is the capstone course for the UNC Graduate Certificate in Applied Data Science (CADS). The course is designed to build upon the formal classroom instruction CADS students receive in data science concepts and technologies through a "hands-on" project experience within an industry, non-profit or other work environment. Students propose their own projects which should relate to their primary field of study/practice. The aim is to provide students with a practical learning opportunity to apply data science techniques on real-world problems.
