Sculpting Accreditation Criteria for Data Science/Analytics

Presented by:  Larry Jones, Paul Leidig, and Barbara Price – representing ABET Taskforce

The data science/analytics field has experienced unprecedented growth over the past few years, as organizations across the globe continue to ramp up the hiring of qualified personnel.  Several institutions have created their own versions of data science/analytics programs at the bachelors and master’s levels. Entities such as the ACM, NSF and the National Academies have attempted to define curriculum for baccalaureate programs to begin the development of a shared understanding of the discipline.

A taskforce representing diverse constituents has been exploring possible ABET accreditation criteria for data science programs. ABET accredits programs in applied and natural science, computing, engineering and engineering technology.

This hands-on workshop session will allow attendees to contribute to this effort and will include project objectives, work to date, analysis of stakeholders, project scope, timeline of key deliverables, strawman data science program criteria, time to review and refine the strawman criteria, and identify programs interested in accreditation.
