Though its Data Science Trainee Program, TAMIDS helps faculty and researchers develop Data Science projects, match interested students to work on them, and provide technical guidance and mentorship during the project.
With the rapid development of information technologies, the applications of data science has dramatically changed various aspects of our society and economy. In responding to this emerging trend, the Texas A&M Institute of Data Science (TAMIDS) was established to pursue new approaches to data science research, education, operations and partnership at Texas A&M University.
Among all the objectives of TAMIDS, the education of the new generation of researchers that combine their disciplinary competences with data science expertise is of paramount importance. Through collaboration with A&M colleges, research agencies, and industrial partners, the TAMIDS Data Science Trainee Program breaks college boundaries to bring together the expertise and skills from science, engineering, operations, business, health, education, etc. to solve challenging problems while preparing our students for their future career success.
