Virginia Tech's Computational Modeling and Data Analytics (CMDA) major

In Spring 2014, Virginia Tech launched this new undergraduate major, a collaboration between the departments of Computer Science, Mathematics, and Statistics. Faculty have developed eight new courses for the major. Other departments have added specialized options for students seeking to apply CMDA skills in particular applications. The first class graduated in May 2017. As of August 2017, more than 380 students are pursuing the CMDA major.
