Data Science Capstone


The capstone project class will allow students to create a usable/public data product that can be used to show your skills to potential employers. Projects will be drawn from real-world problems and will be conducted with industry, government, and academic partners.

What you will learn

Overview, Understanding the Problem, and Getting the Data

This week, we introduce the project so you can get a clear grip on the problem at hand and begin working with the dataset.

Exploratory Data Analysis and Modeling

This week, we move on to the next tasks, exploratory data analysis and modeling. You’ll also submit your milestone report and review submissions from your classmates.

Prediction Model

This week, you’ll build and evaluate your prediction model. The goal is to make your model efficient and accurate.

Creative Exploration

This week’s goal is to improve the predictive accuracy while reducing computational runtime and model complexity.
