DTSA 5841 - IBM Capstone Project Course uri icon



  • The IBM Capstone Project course will allow you to apply the knowledge and skills from the MS-DS degree to a real-world data set provided by IBM. This project will allow you to work independently on a data set that will test your skills in acquiring, cleaning, modeling data, and analyzing a dataset using data mining and machine learning techniques. By the end of this course, you will have a project that you can add to your data science portfolio to show off to employers and demonstrate your data science expertise. This course uses the IBM dataset from the IBM Applied Data Science Capstone course, part of the IBM Data Science Professional Certificate, and provides additional instruction and assessments in order to apply this capstone as an elective for the MS-DS Coursera degree at the University of Colorado Boulder. Because CU is collaborating with IBM on this course, all students will have full access to the IBM Applied Data Science Capstone Course while taking DTSA 5841. It is strongly recommended that you take the Capstone Project course as one of your final courses in the program as you will work with real-world data sets that will use MS-DS core concepts. In order to be successful in this course, only students who have completed the following specializations should register for the Capstone Project: Data Science Foundations: Data Structures and Algorithms, Data Science Foundations: Statistical Inference, Data Mining Foundations and Practice and Machine Learning.
