Center for Data, Mathematical, and Computational Sciences
Ramapo College’s Center for Data, Mathematical, and Computational Sciences (CDMC) is a collaboration between our Data Science, Computer Science, and Mathematics departments. CDMC primarily supports Ramapo College’s three Master of Science degrees in tech – Applied Mathematics, Computer Science, and Data Science.
The mission of the Center is to:
- Promote a modern image of liberal arts, where quantitative skills and digital literacy are recognized as critical to all disciplines.
- Support a tech community at Ramapo College by strengthening interdisciplinary and outside partnerships.
- Develop undergraduate and graduate students skilled at applying technical concepts to real-world problems.
To achieve these goals, the Center
- sponsors a lecture series,
- coordinates experiential learning opportunities for students, and
- houses computing lab space for students and faculty.
5 year B.S. to M.S. Option (4+1)
A key feature of our MS programs is the opportunities for students to complete their BS and MS degrees in just 5 total years at Ramapo, through our 4+1 pathways. Students majoring in Computer Science, Data Science, Mathematics, and Bioinformatics as undergraduates can enroll in any of our MS degree pathways – allowing them to complete graduate courses as seniors, and earn their Master’s degree in the following year.
Thursday, January 26, 2023 - 7-8pm - Location ASB 323 Please join us for a DMC Lecture Series event on Data Storytelling: The Secret to Delivering Business Impact with Analytics, given by Ganes Kesari, the Co-founder and Chief Decision Scientist at Gramener! Did you know that over 50% of analytics projects fail due to bad data storytelling? Organizations invest heavily in hiring data science experts, buying expensive licenses, and setting up analytics processes. However, without the right data visualization, all this effort will go to waste. Stories have the power to engage people and inspire them to action. This session will ... Read More
Wednesday October 12, 1-3 pm, Alumni Lounges On October 12, the Cahill Career Center hosted a specialized fair for Computer Science, Mathematics, Data Science and Information Technology majors to connect them to leading employers within their fields. 13 employers from a wide range of industries attended this event, with nearly 100 DMC students in attendance. Employer feedback was very positive, with high praise for RCNJ students on their preparedness and levels of knowledge. 100% of employers indicated that they would come back and attend more RCNJ events, with a highlight being the amount of engagement they each received from students ...

Friday, October 21st at 12-1pm in ASB 225 Please join us for a DMC Lecture Series event on Using Data and Analytics in Sports, given by Dr. Scott Nestler, Principal Data Scientist & Optimization Lead, SumerSports LLC! The use of data and analytics in sports has changed significantly in the nearly two decades since the release of the book "Moneyball" in 2003. Moving from descriptive to predictive and prescriptive (in terms of the types of analytics used), this evolution was enabled by changes in the type (box score, play-by-play, tracking) of data, as well as growth in quantity and improvements ...

Wednesday, October 12th at 6-7pm in ASB 327 Please join us for a DMC Lecture Series event on Data Assimilation and Dynamical Systems Analysis of Circadian Rhythmicity and Entrainment, given by Dr. Casey Diekman of the New Jersey Institute of Technology! Circadian rhythms are biological oscillations that align our physiology and behavior with the 24-hour environmental cycles conferred by the Earth’s rotation. In this talk, I will discuss two projects that focus on circadian clock cells in the brain and the entrainment of circadian rhythms to the light-dark cycle. Most of what we know about the electrical activity of circadian ... Read More
