Students in the Capstone Research course apply skills such as machine learning, statistics, data management, and visualization to solve real-world problems.
Founded by IACS Scientific Program Director, Pavlos Protopapas, the Capstone Research course is a group-based research experience where students work directly with a partner from industry, government, academia, or an NGO to solve a real-world data science problem. Students will propose a solution in the form of a software package, a set of recommendations in a report, or a research paper. Upon completion of this challenging project, students will be better equipped to conduct research and enter the professional world.
