The UWL Data Science Center (DSC)

The DSC partners with local companies to solve real problems in data science, machine learning, and statistics. The goal is to connect talented students with challenging problems to make an impact on the local community.

  • Research: collaborate with the faculty for consulting or publication.

  • Independent study: work with experienced students to tackle business challenges.

  • The industrial math class (MTH 480) : students spend a whole semester working on research problems provided by the industrial partner.

  • Paid internship: promote the company and recruit students through the center.
