Data Science/Statistics
Data Science and Statistics Departmental Scholarship

Statisticians and Data Scientists deal with the study of data that arise in scientific research, social and economic investigations, in business and industry, and in government work.   Along with a a Bachelor of Science Degree in Statistics, Montana Tech offers the only standalone Bachelor of Science in Data Science and Data Science Certificate in Montana. This exciting new program aims to meet the demands of the growing job market, which International Data Corporation predicts will require roughly 180,000 professionals with data science skills and nearly one million professionals with data management and data interpretation skills in the U.S. by 2018.


Our program is unique and it is growing. To meet that demand, and continue momentum we are focusing on increasing available scholarships for our students. Please consider making a gift today to the Data Science and Statistics Departmental Scholarship.


By making a gift to our Data Science and Statistics Departmental Scholarship, we can help more students reach their educational goals. Please consider giving today and investing in our students at Montana Tech.
