"Purdue's Computer Science program, although rigorous, requires students to understand the deeper meaning behind everything. The depth of knowledge that I have learned in my data science classes has allowed me to be a step above my peers at other schools and has prepared me for life after graduation. My CS 37300 class, Data Mining and Machine Learning, was a huge step up from the prerequisite of CS24200. It required students to learn about specific machine learning algorithms and the math behind it. When doing coding interviews for specific companies, they had me explain these algorithms, and I was able to go much more in depth than they expected."
