The Data Science Summer School (DS3) is an intensive, eight-week hands-on introduction to data science for college students in the New York City area. As MSR-NYC is committed to increasing diversity in computer science, we strongly encourage women, minorities, and individuals with disabilities to apply.
DS3 includes both coursework in data science and group research projects. The summer school is taught by leading scientists at Microsoft Research, and is held at the new Microsoft Research office in the heart of New York City.
