Data Mine Learning Community
The Data Mine is a living, learning and research-based community created to introduce students to data science concepts and equip them to create solutions to real-world problems. Members of The Data Mine will be part of a team, living, studying and ultimately, performing data-driven research together. The Data Mine is part of Purdue University's Integrative Data Science Initiative, which is designed to train students across all majors with the data literacy needed to succeed in a data-driven world.
The Data Mine experience allows students the opportunity to live and learn in a community that revolves around a particular topic or theme. The topics and themes studied within The Data Mine incorporate components relevant to any field of study. Students in each community will live in Hillenbrand Hall, where they will have access to renovated study space, upgraded learning technology and hands-on interaction with faculty within the hall. The Data Mine is open to students from any major of study.
At the Purdue College of Science, the Data Mine Learning Community extends to the following cohorts:
- Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences
- Actuarial Science
