Because of the nature of the Data Science program, students are highly encouraged to have their own personal laptops or other devices to access the cloud and computing resources for practical work in and out of classes.

However, the College of Science has purchased a number of laptops specifically configured and optimized for Data Science Program. Students in Data Science courses can borrow these laptops at no charge from the UTA Library. The laptops are ready to use upon checkout and contain all the necessary software and tools that students need for their coursework and research projects.

Students taking courses in UTA's Data Science Program also have access to the cloud and computational resources made available by the Texas Advanced Computing Center. For more information on how to check out a Data Science laptop from the library, please contact Amir Farbin, associate professor of physics, at
