Purdue to Build Data-Science Flagship
Purdue: "Purdue University will build a new $40 million facility dedicated to data science, designed to help the university meet its goal to be a national and global leader in the field of data science research and education for all students. The flagship four-story building will be 86,000 square feet, featuring classroom and teaching space for all of campus alongside collaborative workspace for College of Science graduate researchers and faculty who form the core of the university’s growing data science program."
Patrick Wolfe, Dean of the College of Science, comments: “By bringing together Purdue’s research strengths in mathematics, statistics, and computer science within an innovative building design, we will further cement our leadership in a critical STEM area and fulfill our commitment to make Purdue the first school for which data science is a part of every student’s education, no matter their field of study. Data science is the new language of life, cutting across all disciplines and fields of research, and so it’s crucial that our students are prepared for this future.”
