The WPI Data Science program is fortunate to have a talented and enthusiastic Executive Advisory Board comprised of some of Massachusetts’ top heavy hitters. Each board member offers specialized insight into the rapidly evolving Data Science field, specifically in relation to its application in health care, energy, data storage, the internet, and so much more.

The Executive Advisory Board is primed to be the first hirees of our newly minted Data Scientists and, by default, to hand pick the premier students. Conversely, through WPI’s Graduate Qualifying Program, our students are given the enviable position of analyzing live data from these major corporations, and in the process, to be interviewing for potential contracts.
