Howard University teams with Amazon for a data science master’s degree
Howard University in D.C. is collaborating with Amazon Web Services to develop new curriculum for cloud computing, machine learning and computer vision.
It will include a new master’s degree program focused on data science and will integrate cloud concepts into other areas of study, including business, computer science and engineering.
The partnership with Amazon Web Services is aimed at getting more students at the historically Black university on a track for high-paying technical careers in in-demand professions, perhaps at Amazon’s HQ2 in Arlington, Virginia. It includes training resources for educators. The school will eventually introduce the Amazon Educate curriculum at its Middle School of Mathematics and Science as well.
