    STEM Designation

    WPI’s Data Science program is a Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM)-designated degree program. Its Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) Code is 30.0801, indicating it has a Mathematics and Computer Science focus. This qualifies it as a STEM program by the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) STEM-designated degree programs. View the STEM degree program list here (PDF).  

    The U.S. government has recognized the importance of STEM education by offering certain privileges for STEM degree recipients. These include, for example, the 17-months extension of Optional Practical Training (OPT) for STEM degree holders from the usual 12 months of Optional Practical Training to 29 months for qualified F-1 non-immigrant visa holder. Learn more about the program here.

    Facilities

    Beyond computer laboratories and classrooms equipped with state-of-the-art computing equipment, you will also be able to participate in data science projects and research in interdisciplinary facilities, including but not limited to:

    • Advanced Learning Technologies Laboratory
    • Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Financial Math Laboratory
    • Analytics Laboratory
    • ASSISTment’s Laboratory
    • Big Data: Data Management, Mining, and Visualization Laboratory Cluster
