NEW MIC Program capitalizes on AI, machine learning & data science
The Missouri Innovation Campus (MIC) program is preparing to launch a highly sought-after bachelor’s degree combining artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning and data science. The Bachelor of Science in Data Science will start in summer 2024, said Stan Elliott, MIC program director, and is offered through the MIC program’s partners – the University of Central Missouri, Lee’s Summit R-7 School District and Metropolitan Community College.
In January 2023, Elliott said he began hearing requests for the new degree from the MIC program’s business partners.
“The business partners were asking if UCM had an AI program and, if so, when would interns be available for the Kansas City region’s workforce as the AI push was growing at a fast pace,” Elliott said. “With the Data Science BS degree program starting in June 2024, interns in the MIC program would be available in June 2025, when they begin their paid, three-year, year-round internship with one of our over 70 MIC business partners.” Click here to read more.
