Data Sciences is one of the four academic units housed in the School and is in an expansion phase with a plan for ongoing hiring over the next few years as the undergraduate program grows. These hires will help to define the future research and academic programs within this new degree. The other three units in the School are Mathematics, The Institute of Math Learning, and Statistics. There is considerable interest from faculty and students in the Eberly College of Arts and Sciences, the Chambers College of Business and Economics, the College of Health Sciences, and the Statler College of Engineering and Mineral Resources in collaborative research with faculty and students in Data Sciences. The teaching load is 2 courses or course equivalents per semester.
