上面是我自己发邮件问的,下面是给 一个总的FAQ:

* Does this program under the STEM registeredcourses?

Yes. That is all the benefits that camewith a degree certified by US Homeland security office as STEM would apply to aDS student, including extended practical training time, and so on.

* The duration of the course

33 credits, with at least 9 credits persemester to be considered full-time as international student.
if you do *NOT* take courses in summersemester, you would need at least 3,  orlikely 4 semesters.
If you take courses in summer, you wouldbe done after 1.5 years.

* Deadlines for the fall 2014

We review application on a rollingbasis, with qualified applications received before January 30th receiving fullconsideration, while later applications will be considered spacepermitting.  For this reason, we doencourage you to get your application in early.

* Tuition and fees

It is the same costs as all otherprograms at WPI.
In particular, it is a 33 credit programwith the costs per credit layed out at:
. Waral 鍗氬鏈夋洿澶氭枃绔,

"Board" (a la food) reallydepends on what food you cook, and how often you go out to restaurants.
Many students tell me that they spend alot less than what is listed.
Plus, some share an apartment  or housing with other students, and also payless for that than what is listed.

Altogether, the city Worcester isrelatively inexpensive; maybe 1/2 or less costs of its neighboring city likeBoston.

*  Financial Aid and Funding

There are teaching assistant positionavailable for qualified applications in the associated departments of ComputerScience and Mathematical Sciences.(这句话好像表示商科那边的是不提供的)
. 鐣欏鐢宠璁哄潧-涓浜╀笁鍒嗗湴
Grader positions as well researchpositions may be available from individual faculty members for support ofcourses or their projects.

There are also some smaller Data ScienceExcellence awards.

With your application, you will beautomatically considered for these types of finanicial awards.(一边说我来学校再考虑,一边说automatically

* Examinations and minimum scorerequirements for international applicants

they are:

* Do I have to meet some prerequisites?

We require a BS that providesquantitative or computational background, including programming with datastructures and algorithms for computational skills, and for quantitative skillsundergraduate courses in calculus, linear algebra, and basic statistics.  If you have some but not all of these, youmay still be admitted on the condition that you take such background courseswhile at WPI to build up a strong analytics background.

We do not have any specific restrictionon major, but require students have the prerequisite knowledge base to succeedin the Data Science program.  Our aim isto get a mixed background of students ranging from business majors, computingmajors, to mathematically focused students; but many other majors would equallyqualify providing the student has sufficient and relevant technicalbackground.  Learning to talk to those inother disciplines is important for you in your job as data scientist, and WPI'sprogram has been purposefully designed as interdisciplinary and flexible tomeet the needs of professionals with varied backgrounds and career aspirations.

* Class profile in terms of class size.

We target a class size of around 20  to 30 students in Data Science.

* When does the fall semester begin?

. from: 1point3acres.com/bbs
Fall starts usually towards end ofAugust.
Timing for the last 3 years (which isalways very similar) can be found here:

Will students have the chance to do someprojects or internships with some companies during the program?

Yes, you are in fact required as part ofthe MS degree to do a Graduate Qualifying project. This in a team of 2 to 4Data Science students you would solve a problem proposed by industry and byworking with industrial mentors.
In addition, you can go on internshipsfor 3 to 4 months each summer, like many of our students at WPI do.

If you want more, many faculty haveon-going industry-related projects. You can always sign up for an independentstudy project
(ISP) with any faculty associated withthe program and participate in those for course credit for instance, whileconcurrently you take other courses.

For instance, we currently have severalprojects with other partners, in including UMASS, HP Labs and MHTC (Mass HighTech Council).  In the the MHTC (MassHigh Tech Council) project, we work on Web-enabled Dynamic Analytics Dashboardfor Economic Prosperity of Massachusetts.
Student develop code, design interface,talk to companies that are members of MHTC, and do data analytics of relateddata sets for trend detection of cost factors and opportunities across businesssectors and state lines.  There are andwill be other such projects you can choose to get involved in based on yourinterest and skills.

. 鐣欏鐢宠璁哄潧-涓浜╀笁鍒嗗湴
* Double counting among degrees at WPI

If you already hold a prior MS degreefrom WPI, for instance in MS IT, CS, or Mathematical Sciences, then by WPI rules"A maximum of one-third of the credit requirements from a previousmaster's degree at WPI may be used in partial fulfillment of the requirementsfor a second master's degree at WPI." So your prior MS degree were 33 credits, then you could count up to 11of those 33 credits towards your Data Science MS degree.

Will there be a Ph.D program focusing onthe data science?

The board is looking into this as a nextstep.  For now, any Data Science studentthat wants to keep going after his or her MS degree, would have the opportunityto continue with her data analytics research projects via a Phd in one of theassociated disciplines, be it computing, business, math, bio-informatics, andso on.

End of FAQ.
