Degree or Certificate Program

Masters in Complex Systems and Data Science (MS in CSDS)

The CSDS program at the Vermont Complex Systems Center provides students with a broad training in computational and theoretical techniques for (1) describing and understanding complex natural and sociotechnical systems, enabling them to then, as possible, (2) predict, control, manage, and create such systems. Students will be trained in: 1. Industry standard methods of data acquisition, storage, manipulation, and curation; 2. Visualization techniques, with a focus on building high quality web-based applications; 3. Finding complex patterns and correlations through, for example, machine learning and data mining; 4. Powerful ways of hypothesizing, searching for, and extracting explanatory, mechanistic stories underlying complex systems—not just how to use black box techniques;
