Data Science Programs in Vermont

University of Vermont

UVM is the standalone university that offers advanced education in data science for the state of Vermont. One program is a Master of Science in Complex Systems and Data Science. This gives students the ability to analyze, manipulate, create, and understand various natural and interactive systems between people and technology. The 30-credit curriculum consists of four core courses worth 12 credits, nine elective credits, and nine credits from one of the following coursework paths or a customized option approved by the program advisor:

  • Biomedical Systems
  • Distributed Systems
  • Energy Systems
  • Environmental Systems
  • Evolutionary Robotics
  • Policy Systems

Other ways to obtain path-specific credits is to complete a project or a thesis, the latter potentially being worth up to nine credits without needing additional coursework. This gives students the ability to use real-world data sets from other institutions or corporations. The entire program is generally completed within two years.

Admission requires a Bachelor's degree with a recommendation of a similar background. Prior coursework should have been completed in programming, data structures, linear algebra, and statistics, but there are prerequisites available for those that need additional education.

The Certificate of Graduate Study in Complex Systems is a truncated version of the full Master's degree and requires five courses to satisfy the program. All students must take three of the four original core courses: Principles and Modeling of Complex Systems, and Data Science I. The two other courses are various electives that can be tailored to the students' needs.

Scholarship Opportunities within Vermont

There are two fellowships from CA Technologies that offers full tuition for those enrolled in a Master of Science in Complex Systems and Data Science at the University of Vermont. The traditional fellowship is for any student that can show high academic merit. An alternative is reserved to female students that are able to obtain at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA.
