Are you interested in all the exciting things happening with The Data Mine, but your schedule won't allow for extra courses?  If so, this cohort is just for you!  Students in the general cohort will take the one-hour credit seminar with all other Data Mine students.  However, there will not be the other courses that are associated with the various disciplines or Corporate Partners.  Perfect for the incoming student who has a tight schedule of core courses, the senior student who wants the skill set prior to graduating, and anyone in-between.  

Additional information can be found at datamine.purdue.edu/.
