In August, faculty from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering partnered with faculty from the Department of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences and the Business School to successfully host the first ever CU Denver Data Science Symposium. The goal of the symposium was to bring together data science communities from CU Denver, from those that pursue research in core data science, to applications of data science in various fields of research, to education programs in data science.
More than 200 people from CU Denver and the CU Anschutz Medical Campus attended the event. The day included a mix of keynote presentations, poster sessions, panel discussions and lightning talks.
“We are encouraged by the wide and enthusiastic response from the CU Denver community and we look forward to expanding the schedule of the CU Data Science Symposium next year, scheduled for Friday, August 28, 2020,” said Farnoush Banaei-Kashani, assistant professor of computer science and engineering and co-chair of the CU Data Science Symposium 2019.
The event was sponsored by the College of Engineering, Design and Computing, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, the Business School and the CU Denver Office of Research Services.
At the CU Denver College of Engineering, Design and Computing, we focus on providing our students with a comprehensive engineering education at the undergraduate, graduate and professional level. Faculty conduct research that spans our five disciplines of civil, electrical and mechanical engineering, bioengineering, and computer science and engineering. The college collaborates with industry from around the state; our laboratories and research opportunities give students the hands-on experience they need to excel in the professional world.
