Students from the CMDA Capstone course

The Computational Modeling and Data Analytics (CMDA) program draws on expertise from three primary departments at Virginia Tech with strengths in quantitative science:  MathematicsStatistics, and Computer Science. By combining elements of these disciplines in innovative, integrated courses that emphasize techniques at the forefront of applied computation, we teach a rich suite of quantitative skills for tackling today's massive data-based problems.
