It consists of project-based learning on a significant and contributory business objective in conjunction with practicing professionals in one of many appropriate industries. You can even complete the practicum by working on a project at your place of employment or by obtaining an internship in the area of data science.

Masa GumiroMasa Gumiro, a 2019 graduate of the data science program, used his practicum project to help solve transportation issues in third world countries. Due to economic challenges, many businesses in third world countries like Zimbabwe, where Gumiro is originally from, operate older vehicles that lack the latest diagnostic tools for monitoring overall vehicle health. Gumiro worked with Toyota Motor North America to provide a custom solution using IoT (Internet of Things) sensors to monitor tire pressure and provide notifications in real time.
