Programs of Study
Developing mathematical models, employing numerical methods, and using data visualization have become increasingly important for a variety of businesses and industries. The Computational and Data Science Track incorporates coursework to reflect the breadth of computational and data science employed to solve realworld problems.
There are two focus areas within the Track:
 Computational Science
 Data Science
Graduate Students in the Computational and Data Science Track take advanced science, math, and engineering courses within these two focus areas and choose electives based on their professional goals.
Students complete a minimum of 36 credits of graduatelevel course work.
15 credits of STEM graduatelevel course work in one of the two focus areas are required

electives: students can request to take 3credits of graduate coursework from the David Eccles School of Business or an approved elective (contact program director for a list of transferable skills electives)
Professional Experience Project (Internship; 3 Credits)
An essential component of the PMST degree is a Professional Experience Project (internship) working with a local company, government agency, or nonprofit organization. These activities engage students in realworld work situations involving technical problems, teamwork, communication skills, and decisionmaking.
Notes: Course availability is subject to change. Substitute classes may be taken upon approval. Courses may have prerequisites which are published in the University Course Catalog; students are responsible for confirming they meet course requirements and prerequisites.
