The Data Science Bootcamp is primarily intended for graduate-level students with a research interest in data science, although the Bootcamp will also appeal to senior undergraduate students who have an interest in pursuing academic studies in this area. The Bootcamp will also accept a limited number of non-students who are working in organizations or business with a focus on data science and related topics.


All Bootcamp participants are expected to be familiar with basic concepts of linear algebra,
calculus, probability and hypothesis testing. Participants are also expected to have some
experience with computer programming and statistical software packages, particularly R.
