Data Science Internship

Data Science Internal Internship in Higher Education at Brandeis University

Top performing students can help drive innovation and increase operational effectiveness when it comes to data scientific applications in higher education. The Data Science Internal (DSI) Internship in Higher Education at Brandeis University explores this possibility by linking relevant COSI faculty, top performing undergraduate students in data science, and willing administrators across the university open to allowing student Interns to bring data scientific solutions into existing work-flows.

The project supports innovation in university administration while giving DSI Interns the opportunity to acquire practical experience in data science applications, get paid for their efforts, leave a noteworthy legacy of contribution to their alma mater, and bolster their preparedness for making a positive impact in the world through technology.

The DSI Internship creates partnerships between undergraduates in data science and administrative offices, oversees the experiential learning of participating students, and tracks the impact of bringing data science, machine learning, and artificial intelligence into higher education operations. It grows out of Dr. Liebowitz’s and Professor Tim Hickey’s data analytic research on the higher education workforce. For more context and background, see the article about the Brandeis DSI Internship project in the July-August 2023 edition of Trusteeship Magazine.

The DSI Internship is co-sponsored by participating administrative offices, the Department of Computer Science, and the Office of the President.
