Uniquely centered in the hub of big data, UNC Charlotte has created the Carolinas' first School of Data Science, tapping the region’s expansive ecosystem of research, industry, and community engagement to apply a visionary lens to the education and application of data science.  UNC Charlotte brings together brilliant minds, through an interdisciplinary partnership, to bridge the gap between society and technology, amid the chaos of data.

The School of Data Science (SDS) at UNC Charlotte is an industry-university-state partnership, led by the College of Computing and Informatics, the Belk College of Business, the College of Health and Human Services, and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.

SDS brings academia and industry together to turn data into knowledge, and knowledge into insight to see what’s possible in the new digital age. The initiative holds the promise of creating tools to understand and highlight misinformation in social media, developing models of pandemics and their disparate impacts. and leading remedies for longstanding city planning challenges. Think about the unlimited possibilities to drive organizational performance. Think about the infinite potential of the “smart city.”
