KDSC Workshops

The Kansas Data Science Consortium (KDSC) was tasked by the National Science Foundation to create data-science based workforce development opportunities. The KDSC is proud to offer a series of workshops to students and professionals that are career relevant and cutting edge.


To kick-off the fall semester, the KDSC is hosting two workshops and co-hosting a third workshop with the KU Economics Department. Prepare for coursework with a refresher on statistics or mathematics or learn new, advanced techniques to incorporate into your studies. These workshops are appropriate for advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and members of the public who have some experience with the topic. All workshops are free to attend, registration is required.
