VISA & Work Study

VISA

Work Study

On-campus employment is limited to 20-hours per week when class in session. However, these 20 total hours can be split between different types of employment, if authorized.
For example, a student working 15 hours per week on an assistantship is eligible for an additional five hours per week of other on- or off-campus employment (off-campus due to economic necessity). Full-time employment is allowed during official school breaks and annual vacation (i.e. summer quarter). Students will need a social security number to work on campus.


Career and Placement after Course

The best jobs today, demanding and rewarding jobs, often involve working with data and systems, making sense out of data, and communicating research results into words that others can understand. Data science training prepares students for these jobs. Organizations are looking for analysts, researchers, programmers, modelers, and data engineers—technical specialists who understand data and systems.
