WANIC Data Analytics & Visualization

Program Description:

Virtually everything people interact with is driven by or generates some form of data. Whether in manufacturing, retail, health care, government, sports, or entertainment, the dramatic increase in data has resulted in a demand for trained professionals who can take raw, unorganized data and visually represent the information so it is understandable. This NEW computer science-based program offered by DigiPen explores practical challenges involving complex, real- world data and examines a wide range of case studies. It also provides a comprehensive look at the various post-secondary pathways and career opportunities for a market that is projected by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics to grow to over $132 billion by 2026.

Students will learn how to extract strategic insights from data, build predictive models to predict future trends, and efficiently communicate them to inform business strategy. They will explore mathematical topics like probability, statistics, linear algebra, and calculus – and use artificial intelligence tools to automate analysis processes.

In this full-year, 3-period Skill Center class (3 high school credits) students will:

  • Understand the applications and implications of data science in different industries
  • Learn how to extract strategic insights from data and efficiently communicate them using a variety of tools
  • Discover mathematical topics from probability and statistics to linear algebra and calculus
  • Learn basic programming skills using Python and examine machine learning and artificial intelligence tools that automate analysis processes
  • Build models to predict future trends and use them to inform business strategy


This program is primarily for students entering their Junior or Senior year of high school in the fall, but younger students are accepted with permission.

  • Algebra 2 or instructor permission


High School Credits:

  • Year 1 – CTE (2.0), Math (1.0)
