Students for Urban Data Systems

at Carnegie Mellon University


Are you a non-profit or government organization and want a free data analysis opportunity? Are you a student who wants to get some hands on experience working with data in a concrete way? SUDS seeks to bring our members together with organizations and data research questions in the real world.

If you’re interested in being involved in an existing project, or if you have an idea for something we can take on in the future, please contact us at We look forward to hearing from you.
