Carnegie Mellon University

2024 Data Analytics for Science Immersion Experience (DASIE)

May 13, 2024 - May 24, 2024

There is a widespread need for scientists with advanced data skills and a national need to recruit and retain emerging scientists from underrepresented groups.

DASIE, in partnership with Dow and Accenture, addresses this skills gap by bringing together students from outside of Carnegie Mellon University to start building a pipeline of future science leaders with advanced data skills and to bring awareness of opportunities that exist at CMU, the partner organizations and the industry as a whole.

Participants will spend one week on campus at CMU, experiencing some of the curriculum relating to Data Analytics, and then travel to Midland, MI for hands-on experiences at Global Dow Center. In addition to their time in the classroom, there will be many opportunities for connection, including on-the-job shadowing and training from Dow and Accenture industry experts and mentoring from CMU faculty and staff.

THIS IS A FULLY FUNDED PROGRAM for underrepresented undergraduate students in their sophomore, junior, or senior year. STUDENTS SELECTED FOR THE PROGRAM WILL Have TRAVEL AND LODGING COVERED AND RECEIVE A STIPEND.
