“Do Not Take” Courses and Equivalents

  • If you take DATA 605 Ethical & Legal Issues in Data Science, then do not take other program’s ethics classes, for example
    • CYBR 623 – Cybersecurity Law and Policy
    • ENMG 656 – Engineering Law and Ethics
    • SENG 601 – Ethics in Software Engineering
    • HIT 664 – Health IT Law and Ethics
    • ENTR 603 – Legal and Ethical Issues for Entrepreneurs

because of the serious amount of overlap between DATA 605 and these courses. On the other hand, if you can’t find a seat in DATA 605, then you can take either of these classes as an equivalent. If you do that, please send an email to your advisor, so that your advisor can put a note in your records.

  • Similarly, if you take DATA 607 Leadership in Data Science¬†then
    • ENMG 652 Management, Communication, and Leadership,
    • BTEC 665 – Management, Leadership, and Communication
    • ENTR 602 – Leadership and Communications

because of the serious amount of overlap between DATA 607 and these courses. On the other hand, if you can’t find a seat in DATA 607, then you can take either of these classes as an equivalent. If you do that, please send an email to your advisor, so that your advisor can put a note in your records.

  • If you want to take 300-400 level courses to enhance your knowledge in fundamental subjects, you can do that but these courses won’t be counted towards your MPS degree. The courses you can take should have either 600- or 700-level codes.
