Besides hosting events, SAAS also offers opportunities for students to hone their skills as a member of one of its four committees. By joining a committee, students can get involved in the leadership of the club and gain practical experience in statistical research, event planning, or marketing. We encourage any interested students to apply at the beginning of each semester.
At the core of our club is the Data Consulting Committee. Members have the opportunity to analyze real-life data, working with companies, nonprofits, and Berkeley-affiliated organizations to advise policy and make data-driven decisions. Students will learn a variety of machine learning techniques and advanced statistical methods, as well as a suite of visualization tools, all in a professional yet instructive setting.
The Career Exploration Committee is a great place to start for students who are just beginning their careers in Statistics! Members get access to exclusive weekly talks, statistical and professional workshops, and career info sessions, along with private office hours with experienced advisors and the continuous academic and social support SAAS offers.Learn More
The Web Development Committee develops and maintains our website in addition to developing web applications for various uses. Members will learn the fundamentals of developing and maintaining a website through working on projects for the SAAS website.
