MIDS provides students coursework that I think is very useful for people who want to excel in data science. Also, the required summer internship and capstone project can help students eliminate the gap between academics and industries. Lastly, since MIDSters are from different backgrounds, it would be a great opportunity to exchange ideas and explore possible interdisciplinary collaborations.
