Students pursuing the ISS Undergraduate Certificate may choose to fulfill some of their requirements through the Certificate 2.0 option, which allows co-curricular projects, internships, and other non-classroom activities to count towards Certificate elective credits. A few potential opportunities are listed below; students may also propose credit for internships and other relevant activities outside of the Duke setting.
Data+ Summer Program
Data+ is a 10-week summer research experience that welcomes Duke undergraduates interested in exploring new data-driven approaches to interdisciplinary challenges. Students join small project teams, working alongside other teams in a communal environment. They learn how to marshal, analyze, and visualize data, while gaining broad exposure to the modern world of data science. Participants will receive a stipend. Learn more about the program, or browse the projects below for more details. Graduate studies may have opportunities to become Data+ Mentors as well.

The Innovation Co-Lab is a creativity incubator, focused on exploring how new and emerging technologies can fundamentally reshape the research, academic, and service missions of the university. Working with our innovation-minded colleagues around campus, we're building a model program that will elevate and inspire Duke students who are solving problems, big and small, through our ever-changing technological environment. Duke students of all backgrounds, interests, and skill-sets are encouraged to participate.
