Our fast-growing department uniquely focuses on the “science of data” and the exploration of evolving analytical techniques.  

The Department of Computational and Data Sciences, as a global leader, is one of only a few departments that offers degrees at all levels (bachelors, masters, and two PhDs).

NFL Combine Data Explorer Project by Computational Sciences

As a final project for CDS professor Michael Eagle’s class - CSI 703: Scientific and Statistical Visualization, Carson Bulgin and William Wautlet (MS students) created a data visualization tool that compares college football players for the NFL draft. Their project, explained in more detail in this video, allows users to examine relevant statistics between players and presents the data in a clean, well-organized interface through a series of radar charts, histograms, and parallel coordinates charts.
