Mission & Vision
Nittany Data Labs (NDL) was officially founded in the Fall of 2017 by students dedicated to providing a community around Data Science. Since then, it has grown to one of the largest student clubs in the College of Information Sciences and Technology. Supported by a variety of corporate and academic sponsors, NDL serves as a resource for all undergraduate and graduate students, as well as faculty members, interest in topics related to Data Science.
“To be the place for Penn State students to learn about and improve on using data to make them better at what they do.”
At Nittany Data Labs, our purpose is to foster the growth of our member’s knowledge and understanding of data science and business intelligence by providing them with platforms to gain knowledge and projects with real clients and stakeholders so that they can contextualize that knowledge.
From beginners to professionals, NDL is certain to take the time to train our members so that they can be more effective data scientists and analysts.
Working with our trained members, we give them an opportunity to use their knowledge via real-world experience, and we help solve problems for our corporate partners.
Between the training and consulting process, we create a community of data scientist and a network of young professionals eager to begin their careers in this field.
