MSDA students take this course during their second semester at SJSU. Silicon Valley domain experts and industry leaders are invited to the class each week to present their case studies and propose industry project topics for students. After completing this class, students can potentially connect with Silicon Valley experts and work on real-world master’s degree projects (DATA 298A and 298B) in the following two semesters. Students also may have the opportunity to seek internships by connecting with Silicon Valley companies.
A new student must take at least one course during the first semester in order to keep his/her student status. An F-1 student must take 3 courses each (except the last) semester to keep the visa status.
In order to accommodate working and international students, the schedule for Spring 2019 is:
CMPE 257: In-person, from 6:00 pm to 8:45 pm on Thursdays, starting January 24
DATA 294: In person, from 6:00 pm to 8:45 pm on Tuesdays, starting January 29
