UB's School of Engineering and Applied Sciences is looking for companies, non-profit agencies and government entities big and small who need data-savvy interns.
As part of New York State’s Connecting the Dots program, students enrolled in our Data Science Micro-Credential are required to participate in a paid internship experience, working directly with organizations to solve problems and answer questions based on the use of data science.
The Connecting the Dots program is a collaboration between the University at Buffalo and the City College of New York, with the goals to:
A wide range of organizations are welcome to engage with our students, be it a large corporation or a local small business. Types of organizations who might benefit from this program include, but are not limited to:
Our data science students are learning the skills to understand, interpret and analyze data of any kind. They are learning to effectively communicate results that stem from the analysis of data, and how to apply data science concepts to solve practical business problems with real-world relevance. This is your opportunity to solve a problem or answer a business question through data, while providing an engineering student with valuable experience.
Data are everywhere and making sense of it is a challenge. You may be swimming in data and don't know how to harness it to help your organization. Maybe you need someone to analyze water quality data to determine whether local beaches are safe, or to analyze customer service data to predict behavior, or to measure seasonal fluctuations in environmental contaminants, or to sift through your metrics to gauge manufacturing performance. Our students can work with you to build tools, dashboards or visualizations methods or inform your next steps.
There are two internship options.
