Canisius College Vice President for Academic Affairs Margaret C. McCarthy, PhD, has appointed H. David Sheets, PhD, director of the college’s new, one-year MS program in data analytics. Scheduled to launch in fall 2018, the new degree program applies fundamental scientific principles to the analysis of large, complex data sets. Housed in the College of Arts and Sciences, data analytics will function as a uniquely interdisciplinary major that provides students with a graduate-level education in three core components of the field: statistics, computer science and business (including accounting, economics, finance, management and marketing).
Sheets, a professor in the Physics Department, begins his new role as director of the data analytics program in January 2018. He will oversee the development and implementation of the interdisciplinary program, and teach program coursework.
