Berkeley inaugurates Division of Data Science and Information, connecting teaching and research from all corners of campus

November 1, 2018

In a direct response to the profound and growing impact of data and computing in a rapidly evolving digital world, UC Berkeley today announced its plan to form a new division, provisionally referred to as the Division of Data Science and Information, which will harness the university’s leadership in the field to prepare thousands of students and researchers to bring data science to bear in the classroom, the laboratory and the workplace. The first-of-its-kind division, situated as a peer of Berkeley’s colleges and schools, represents one of the most profound changes in the university’s organization in decades, and is designed to engage faculty and students across the Berkeley campus and connects departments from the College of Engineering, the College of Letters and Science and the School of Information.
