Sigma Omega Upsilon: International Business Fraternity

My name is Jessica Goddard and I am a member of my professional fraternity, Sigma Omega Upsilon. Our spring recruitment starts next Sunday and I am reaching out to see if you could share some information about this unique opportunity to the Computer Science & Engineering students.

Although we are a professional business fraternity, over a third of our brothers are non-business majors, including myself (I am a junior Public Health major). Our aim as an organization is to develop our members professionally so that no matter what career field they want to enter, they have the professional skills to succeed.

UofSC students, enrolled in Computer Science and Engineering programs, with focus on cybersecurity and related disciplines, are eligible to apply for the DoD CySP.  The motivation for the program and application information are provided at the DoD CySP website: 

"Given our increasing reliance on cybersecurity, information technology (IT), the growing threats to information, and information systems and infrastructures, it is critical that the Department of Defense (DoD) protect itself. To do so, the DoD must be staffed with technically savvy personnel. To help achieve this task, the DoD Cyber Scholarship Program (DoD CySP) was established. The DoD CySP is sponsored by the DoD Chief Information Office and administered by the National Security Agency (NSA). The objectives of the program are to promote higher education in all disciplines of cybersecurity, to enhance the Department’s ability to recruit and retain cyber and IT specialists, to increase the number of military and civilian personnel in the DoD with this expertise, and ultimately, to enhance the nation’s cyber posture.

Recruitment Scholarships (Non-DoD Employees):

As a recruitment tool, the DoD CySP sponsors students who currently are not DoD or government employees who are enrolled in or applying to universities designated as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cybersecurity. Following graduation, students are eligible for full-time employment with various components and agencies across the DoD. Students are required to work for the DoD a minimum of one year for each year of scholarship support they receive. " (source: DoD Cyber Scholarship Program,  )

This solicitation document gives a short overview of the scholarship eligibility requirements, scholars' obligation, and the application process.  If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Farkas at farkas@cse.sc.edu

UofSC's Annual Big Data Health Case Competition

My name is Audrey, and I am a project coordinator reaching out on behalf of the University of South Carolina's Big Data Health Science Center. We are hosting our third annual case competition, a virtual event in which students compete in teams to solve an issue in healthcare using big data analytics for a chance to win cash prizes, and we would love for the University of South Carolina-Columbia to be represented this year.  

The 3rd Annual Big Data Health Science Case Competition will be held virtually between February 4th- 6th 2022 before the University of South Carolina’s National Big Data Health Science Conference, scheduled for February 11th - 12th 2022. Last year’s winner was Georgia Institute of Technology, so it is time for others to compete to dethrone them. The Big Data Case Competition is intended to provide enthusiastic teams of graduate and senior undergraduate students with the opportunity to apply their knowledge to the analysis of big datasets in healthcare. This year’s challenge will focus on solving the inappropriate use of healthcare using data science. 

 Each participating team will analyze the case and datasets. During this period, the teams must identify the most prominent issues associated with ambulatory care sensitive conditions (ACSC) and develop a strategy to address key issues to help healthcare organizations achieve their goals of reducing inappropriate care utilization. Team members will work together to present their methods, analyses, and results at the Big Data Health Science Center Case Competition virtually. A panel of industry and academic experts will judge the presentations based on each team’s use of full analytics tools/processes, from framing the problem to data use, model building, innovation and communicating the solutions to decision-makers. More details about this event can be found in the flyer below. Please share this flyer with your students and faculty, and we look forward to hosting you! 

UofSC's Big Data Health Summer Research Program

We are writing to you to seek your assistance in recruiting qualified pre-doctoral (masters and pre-dissertation graduate students) in the physical and quantitative sciences for the recently awarded NIH T35 grant (T35AI165252-01) short summer training program titled “Big Data Health Science Scholar Program for Infectious Diseases” program at UofSC. Eligible students should have completed at least 1 year in their graduate program with a GPA of 3.5 or better. 

This program is designed to address the shortage of Big Data health science workforce and promote Big Data health science research at UofSC and beyond by introducing eligible students to the application of data science to infectious disease. 

We plan to recruit eight (8) students each year who are interested in learning about how to apply data science to infectious disease related research. This is a 3-month, full-time (40 hours per week) program to work alongside established scientists on one or more Big Data Health-related studies. Each student trainee will be involved in a specific research project, actively participating in a hands-on manner in a research laboratory currently conducting studies related to Big Data Health Science.  More details about this program can be found in the flyer below. Please share this flyer with your students and faculty, and we look forward to hosting the students of the University of South Carolina-Columbia! Click here for more information.
