Closed (1) Entreprenuership

Applications for Fall 2017 are now closed for this project.

In this category students will be working with external startups who are looking for students to aid them with their research and operations. While the work will vary, most of the work will be supplementing the team's data scientists and data analysts with their research. The startups will range from local Berkeley startups to international VC funded ventures, all of whom partnered with BIDS. It is very likely that most of the work and the meetings conducted will be remote unless the company’s office is locally based in Berkeley. This opportunity allows students to internally experience innovative startups without the full commitment of long term employment.

Closed (2) Social Impact

Applications for Fall 2017 are now closed for this project.

Data science can have a tremendous impact on social issues. This is a great opportunity for students who want to put their skills to use in a socially impact way.


Examples include helping:
1) Improve human resource planning at UC Berkeley
2) Analysis of UCOP procurement
3) Improving understanding of educational outcomes in a local network of Bay Area charter schools.

Closed (4) Infrastructure and Consulting

Applications for Fall 2017 are now closed for this project.

Our infrastructure and consulting teams work with a research project for the semester to help them run as effectively as possible to meet their long-term research goals. The consultants aid clients with any structural or technical problems that may be encountered along the way. The infrastructure team will be focused on improving the database and web platforms that run the Discovery Experience Initiative.
