Master of Environmental Data Science Capstone Project Presentation Day: A Welcome by Dean Steve Gaines

I’m pleased to welcome you to the 1st annual Capstone Project Final Presentations, showcasing projects completed by the Bren School Master of Environmental Data Science Class of 2022. Over the course of six months, students work in teams with two faculty advisors who monitor progress, provide technical assistance and expertise, and evaluate the project. This hands-on experience prepares Bren graduates to be leaders in solving the environmental problems of the 21st century. 

The Master of Environmental Data Science (MEDS) program offers an applied problem-solving and solution-oriented curriculum that prepares students with skills to work with, analyze, and communicate environmental data. 

MEDS Capstone Projects train students to work as a team while they conduct comprehensive analyses of current environmental issues. Students partner with clients to define the scope of a real-world environmental problem, then contribute to a solution through data processing, analysis, and development of data products.

The Bren School of Environmental Science & Management at the University of California, Santa Barbara continues to play a leading role in researching environmental issues, identifying and solving environmental problems, and training research scientists and environmental-management professionals. The Bren School continues to be impressed by the depth of knowledge displayed by our students. Thank you for joining us for this fascinating day of presentations.
