Promoting Faculty Research

The Center for Analytics and Data Science (CADS) is transforming undergraduate education in analytics and data science by leveraging experiential learning opportunities and offering a multidisciplinary approach to build leaders for the information economy. The interdisciplinary center is comprised of faculty, staff, and student interns engaged in experiential projects, research, networking events, and a data analysis competition to develop a strong foundation in analytics and to build a wide network of contacts. 

CADS connects students, faculty, and industry professionals from all different backgrounds. From environmental science and healthcare to marketing and engineering, the data explosion brings once-unimagined possibilities and a shortage of people with the expertise to gather, store, manage, process and analyze data. 

CADS focuses on:

  • Developing problem solvers with the technical skills, leadership ability, and professionalism who can turn data into information and information into insight
  • Creating a collaborative environment that infuses the sound practice of analytics and data science methods into research, teaching, and practice, helping both the university and our partnerships in industry

Supporting Departments

The Center is supported by faculty and staff from several departments across Miami's campus. They inspire our students to have a drive to excel in the data sciences, provide resources to refine and further advance their analytics skills, and mature their confidence to solve real world problems.

These departments include:
